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.
School governors are a mixture of parents, staff members, co-opted governors who are usually representatives from the local community and those appointed by Local Education Authority.
The Governing Body meet with the Headteacher and SLT to ensure that the strategic direction and targets for the efficient management of the school, standards, and progress are being met; ensuring that they hold the Headteacher to account.
Following the DfE Constitution of Governing Bodies of Maintained Schools report May 2014, HPS Governing Body adopted The School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012 at their Summer meeting 3rd June 2014. More information can be found here.
