Our Governors are drawn from a wide cross section of our community, each one bringing special skills to benefit our school. We actively support our Head Teacher in the managing of our school.  This takes place through individual committees.  The leadership and Management  committees meet regularly and each Governor sits on one or two of them.  Full Governing Body meetings take place once a term.

We have an “open door” policy and Governors can visit the school anytime.  Governors come in to observe lessons and to talk informally with staff and pupils and to see the school working on a daily basis.

As we are a small rural school, the local community is very important to our school’s well-being.  Our Governors encourage school involvement with our local church and with community organised events. organised locally.

The Local Governing Body of Blackshaw Moor CofE First School  ensure that governors and staff are not involved in activities that might conflict with their role within the school. It is especially important to demonstrate that individuals do not benefit personally from the decisions made by the governors, unless such decisions are made openly and legitimately. As such the register of interests must be available on the school website.

This register is updated fully each year and reviewed during the year.
