Governors

The three core strategic functions of the Marsh Lane Primary School governing board are:

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

Governors, who are volunteers, undertake their work through full governing body meetings (four per year), committee meetings and regular visits to the school.  

The committees are:

  • Teaching & Learning (TLC)
  • Resources Management (RMC)
  • Headteacher Performance Management (HPMC)

The governing board of Marsh Lane Primary School was reconstituted on 10th February 2015 and is now made up of:

  • 4 Parent Governors 
  • 1 Local Authority Governor
  • 1 Staff Governor
  • 1 Headteacher
  • 5 Co-opted Governors
