The Governors are the formal strategic body who meet at least once each term to set priorities for the school and agree on the long term plans including the school budget. They agree the vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school including policy and procedures, with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement and pastoral care. Together with the headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school’s aims and policies.
Specific duties include agreeing the school budget, setting staffing levels, ensuring that a broad and balanced curriculum is delivered whilst ensuring that management of the school premises is given high priority which includes monitoring the health and safety of pupils, staff and visitors.
The Governing Body is made up of parent governors, elected by the parents of pupils at the school, staff governors including the Headteacher, Local Authority appointed Governors and Community Governors. The team is made up of a variety of people from different backgrounds but who all share the passionate belief that Leamington Community Primary School should be a happy and successful school where every child is given the opportunity to reach their full potential.
The Governing Body has three sub committees which meet at least once each term: Finance, Pay and Personnel, Curriculum and Building and Resources. These committees report actions/recommendations to the full Governing Body which also meets at least once a term.

If you would like to contact any of our Governors please send a letter for their attention via the School Office.
Parents are asked to put their requests or complaints in writing to the Governing Body; most Governors are not based in school and generally only meet formally once each term.
If you have any questions about our Governing Body, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Julie Dear (Clerk to Governors). Our Governors are volunteers from the community who work together to ensure that the school is well managed. The Headteacher and staff representatives are also members of the Governing Body.
To become a member of our Governing Body, please write to Pat Monaghan (Chair of Governors) via the school office.
