Governing Body

The Governing Body at West Park works in close partnership with the Headteacher, staff and the Local Authority. Whilst the Headteacher is responsible for the day to day running of the school, the governors are involved, for example, with such things as curriculum, health and safety, safeguarding, school buildings and finance. It ensures the school functions well and maintains the proper range of academic and social objectives. The Governing Body works as a team with shared responsibilities.

Governors never make decisions on their own, nor do they act as individuals. The Full Governing Body meets at least once each term; additionally, there are subcommittees which meet more frequently.


In the year 2022-23 there are no familial links between governors and staff. 


We are fortunate to have a wide mix of experienced individuals on our board of Governors.
