About Us

Governance at The Federation of Burley & Sopley Primary Schools

 Our governing body consists of 12 members with a good diversity of skills and experience to be both a supportive and a questioning friend.

 The Full Governing Body meets at least once each term but most of our work is done in the following committees.  

  • School Improvement
  • Safeguarding and Compliance
  • Resources and Finance
  • Pay
  • Executive Head Teacher’s Performance Management

 Governors with named responsibilities report to the appropriate committee. In turn, the committees then report to the full governing body, which has overall responsibility for the governance of both schools.

 Governors attend most school events and are always happy to chat to parents. Alternatively, if you have questions or feedback, then you can contact the chair of governors through either school office. Please do note though, that if you have any specific issues regarding individual pupils or members of staff, these should be raised with the executive headteacher in the first instance.
