Welcome to our Governors’ Page bringing you information about how Larkrise Governors work in partnership with the School, to ensure the best education for your child.


What is the role of the Governing Body?


As a governing body our role is to set the vision, ethos and strategic direction for our school. This year, in conjunction with the school vision and development plan we will:


  • Support and challenge the school to ensure ongoing improvement and the highest possible progress and attainment of our pupils.


  • Work in partnership with pupils, staff and parents to create a safe nurturing learning environment.


  • Oversee and monitor the school financial performance to ensure money is well spent


  • Set high expectations of behaviour


  • Work with pupils, staff, parents and FOLS to ensure Larkrise remains at the heart of our community


When do Governors meet?


Local Governing Body meetings take place on a termly basis. 


The Clerk to the Governors Tina Weavers,  minutes meetings and informs on legal requirements and current trends and miniutes meetings across the Trust.
