Homerswood School Governing Body

The Governing Body at Homerswood Nursery and Primary School provides strategic support and has a vital role to play in making sure that every child gets the best possible education.

The Governing Body has three core functions:

  • to be accountable
  • to be strategic
  • to provide Financial probity

 

The Governing Body of Homerswood School currently has 8 members.

We currently have vacancies for 3 Community governors and 1 Local Authority governor.

If you are interested then please contact the school office (admin@homerswood.herts.sch.uk). 

Governing Body meetings

As of September 2017 the governing body structure has been revised to ensure maximum efficiency and knowledge.  All governors are expected to attend all six meetings throughout the year.  In addition we also have a small resources committee which meets when required to meet the needs as defined in the terms of reference.
