‘Every child counts, every moment matters’

Governing Body

Welcome to the Governors page of the website. 

The Board of Governors of Britannia School is made up of different people from the community. Some are parents of children at the school while others have an interest in community-based activities. The Governors have a wide range of skills and experience which they use in their work as a Governor from education, business, industry and clerical.

What do the Board of Governors do?

School governors make collective decisions as part of the governing body whose primary function is to help raise the educational standards and performance of a school by supporting the work of the head teacher and staff. Governors make important decisions on how a school will be run. The governing body is answerable to parents and the wider community.

Some of the things expected of governors include:

  • Promoting high standards of achievement Setting the school's aims, values and ethos
  • Budgetary allocation and control Planning the school's long-term future
  • Appointing staff


All Governors are volunteers and at our school we have five types of Governor:

1: Parent Governors:  Parent Governors are elected by the parents of children at the school.

2: Staff Governors:  Staff Governors are elected by the staff at the school.

3: Co-opted Governors: These are elected by the Governing Body based on skills needed.

4: Local Authority Governors: Appointed by the Local Authority.

5: Headteacher Governor: Appointed upon recruitment.


All of our Governors have special areas of expertise or interest, and so responsibilities are allocated with this in mind
