The Governing Body is foremost responsible for the long term management and direction of the school and the support of the Head Teacher.


The governing body is made up of two elected parents of pupils in the school, an elected member of the teaching staff, two representatives from the Church (known as Foundation Governors), one representative of the Local Education Authority and Community, and other community Governors are co-opted for their particular skills, interests or associations with the school.


Each member of the Governing serves on one or more committees with responsibilities concerning particular areas of school life.  Currently there are two committees: Raising Standards Committee and Operational Committee.  Each committee includes either the Head Teacher or the Senior Teacher, and is chaired and minuted by a governor.


Governors, especially parent governors who are your elected representatives, are always willing to listen to you.

How can I get in touch with a Governor?

1.  Leave a note in the Governor suggestion box

2.  Speak with a Parent Governor in the playground

3.  Leave a letter for a Governor with Mrs Sharp

4.  Leave a message with Mrs Sharp that you wish to speak to a 5.  Governor, and she will pass the message on

              Chair of Governors


Welcome to the Governors’ page

The role of governors is to work closely with the Head Teacher to provide the very best education that we can for the children of Wreningham School. They are responsible for monitoring and evaluating the performance and effectiveness of the school, for ensuring that the budget is managed prudently and for supporting our excellent staff.

       There are two full Governing Body meetings per term and each governor is a member of at least one of the committees - Raising Standards or the Operational Committee. Each of the committees meet once per half term. Governing Body minutes are available in the governor file in school.  

            The Governors are always keen to seek the views of parents, so please chat to them when you see them at school, in the playground or at any school function. The governors feel extremely privileged to be part of the life of our successful and vibrant school.

Mr Jon Gent
