Brimsham Green School

Brimsham Green School

The Governing Body has the responsibility for ensuring the good conduct and high standards of educational provision and achievement throughout the school. Governors do this by setting the strategic direction of the school, ensuring the quality of the education is high and by holding the Headteacher to account. All of this will enable governors to continually drive up standards within our school.

The Governing Body have responsibility for raising school standards through their three key roles:

  • Ensuring the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school are clearly defined.

  • Ensuring the Headteacher is held to account for the educational performance of the school.

  • Ensuring sound financial management of the school’s financial resources.


The Full Governing Body (FGB) meets formally six times per annum, which includes a Budget meeting. In addition to the FGB we operate several committees that report back to the Full Governing Body. Governors also support the school outside of these formal meetings through the role of the Link Governor. Link Governors are allocated to specific subjects and areas prioritised for improvement. They also support school events and take part in various sub committees and discipline panels as the need arises.
