Athersley North Primary School

Governing Body

School governing bodies are made up of people from school communities who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education.

Governors govern rather than manage.  Their role is one of direction and focus; they make decisions collectively on matters such as performance targets, school policies, and the school’s development plan.

In addition to providing support and advice to the headteacher, their role is to challenge the headteacher by gathering views and asking searching questions to make sure that any decisions taken are in the best interest of the school.
If you are interested in becoming a Governor please contact the school office or click on the links and watch the video for further information.
