Governors Strategic Responsibilities

Our governing board is responsible for schools at a strategic level with our Headteacher having delegated responsibilities for the day to day operational management of their school.


Meldreth Primary School has a strong, supportive governing body committed to ensuring that the school provides all its pupils with the best education possible. The governing body provides strategic leadership and accountability. Governors meet at least once a term as a full governing body and then additionally for sub-committees and governor training. Link governors and governor teams with specific responsibilities also undertake regular visits to the school to meet with staff and children.
Our three core responsibilities as Governors are: Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction, engaging with stakeholders, and ensuring statutory duties are met. Holding the Headteacher to account for: the educational performance of the school and it’s pupils; behaviour and safety; and the performance management of the staff. Ensuring financial solvency and probity with effective management of financial resources.
