The Governing Body of Sandal Castle Primary school is made up of dedicated individuals from a wide range of backgrounds. We are all volunteers who give our time to monitor and evaluate school practices to ensure management of the school are spending the budget wisely to ensure the best outcomes for all of the children. We also have to make sure that the school is meeting all statutory requirements.
Our Chair of Governors is Donna Richardson and Vice Chair is Rachel Laybourne. They can be contacted via school.
The values and roles of the Governing Body are driven by the DfE Competency Framework for Governance, January 2017.
There are a number of other ways we support and monitor the school other than attending meetings. One of our favourite things to do is visit the school on learning walks and attend performances. In particular we are always impressed by the exceptional behaviour and positive attitudes of the children and it is really rewarding to see how much they enjoy learning. We also attend training provided by school and the Local authority to update and improve our knowledge and skills so we can fulfil our roles as governors effectively.
We currently have one Foundation Governor vacancy. Please contact Rev. Rupert Martin for more information.
