Information regarding Parent Governor Nomination and Nomination form

(LGB) Local Governing Body


On the 1st of June 2017 John Wycliffe Primary School joined the Inspiring Primaries Academy Trust.  From this date, the Full Governing Body (FGB) became the Local Governing Body (LGB).

We aspire to give our pupils the best possible education delivered in a happy, caring and safe environment. Each child is treated as an individual and supported and encouraged to achieve his or her full potential.

 Governors in all types of schools have three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school, the children and staff.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure it is money well spent.

John Wycliffe is already a good school but we want it to continue to improve and develop so we work closely with the Headteacher and the senior leaders to make key decisions and agree the priorities for the school. All governors are involved in formal monitoring visits to evaluate the school in action. We attend parent evenings and are also warmly welcomed to school events such as concerts, sports day and even Christmas lunch!

The Local Governing Body (LGB) meets at least once a term, but much work is also conducted through our sub-committees which meet regularly. The Governing Body is comprised of parents, staff, and co-opted members largely from the local community. Vacancies are advertised when they arise.  We also ensure that all members of the Governing body have consistent access to training via the NGA website

Current governors, including their role within the Local Governing Body  and terms of office can be found by navigating to the Governance Committee Members page.
