We are committed to safeguarding the welfare of our pupils. We expect everyone to share this commitment. View the safeguarding section of our website for more information.
Welcome to our Governors' section.
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.
The full governing body committee meets three times per year. The Resources committee and the Curriculum and pupil issues committee also meet three times per year.
All governors are required to attend these meetings as all governors are on these committees.
Categories of Governor
If you are a parent of a pupil(s) at the school or the primary carer, you can stand for election as one of the Parent Governor positions, (once a Parent Governor post becomes vacant). If more than one parent expresses an interest in filling a vacancy, elections are held in which all parents can vote.
Co – opted Governors:
A Co – opted Governor is a person who in the opinion of the governing body, has the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.
A member of staff paid to work at the school and elected by the staff.
A Governor normally appointed by the local education authority.
A member of the Governing Body by virtue of their office. If the Headteacher elects not to be a Governor then his/her place cannot be taken by anyone else.
The governors of Bowlee Park Community Primary School believe it is important that our board reflects the diversity of the school communities they serve. Diverse boards promote inclusive school environments and provide diverse role models for staff and young people.
The governors are currently collecting data on the diversity of the board, including data on age, gender and ethnicity. We will use that data to inform our recruitment and training needs and ensure there is always a diverse range of perspectives around the table to support robust decision making.
Due to our relatively small governing body, we do not publish this diversity data online as individual governors could be identified and we have a legal obligation to protect their personal data.
