Corfield Church of England Infant School

Our School Governors



The school's Governing body is made up from various members of the community, who have a wide range of: background, skills, knowledge and experience. The Governors work collectively to support the school and participate in decisions that directly affect the education and well-being of the children attending. The Headteacher, Mrs Bignall, is ultimately responsible for the day-to-day management of the school and implementation of policies; but the Governors assist her and her staff by monitoring and keeping under review the broad policies, plans and procedures within which the school operates.


A Governor's term of office lasts for four years and during this time they attend six meetings annually. Each Governor is also a member of a sub-committee, that meet separately once a term to oversee specific areas within the school. Our sub-committees are: resources and management, (including finance), and teaching and learning committee.


Full Governing Body meetings take place at least once  term.
