Coleshill C of E Primary School

Encouraging an enthusiasm for learning that lasts a lifetime.


The governing body are responsible for raising school standards through their three key strategic functions:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  2. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent. 

Since we are a church-aided school, we also have a duty to help the school to maintain its Christian ethos.

Our governors are a group of volunteers from the local community - including Coleshill Parish Church and parents - as well as representatives from the teaching staff, who have all made a commitment to provide the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team with support and advice to help them run the school for the benefit of the pupils and the wider community. They come from all walks of life, reflecting different communities, work skills and life experiences. All have a shared interest in helping our school be the best it can be. Their role is sometimes described as being a critical friend.

The Governing Body meets once every half term to deal with school business, and have additional sub committee meetings to discuss Standards & Performance and Resources. They help to set standards, monitor the school budget and track academic progress against targets. They have legal duties, powers and responsibilities, but can only act together as a body, not as individuals. The Headteacher is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school.

You’ll often see governors in school and their photos are on display in the entrance hall. Governor vacancies will be advertised in the school newsletter.
