Working in partnership to ensure that every child’s success is at the heart of all we do


What we do

Alongside the senior leadership team at Radcliffe Primary, governors are responsible for deciding on the strategic direction of the school. This includes contributing to decisions on:

  • vision and values
  • staffing
  • curriculum
  • finance
  • premises
  • behaviour and standards
  • equality and inclusion
  • health, safety and safeguarding
  • extended school
  • special educational needs
  • parental and community engagement

We fulfil statutory duties to ensure that the school is a safe, healthy and inclusive place.
We support and challenge the school leadership team, acting as a ‘critical friend’.
We each contribute our experience and expertise to drive school improvement forward.
We meet in committees and once a term as a full Governing Body.

The Governing Body is drawn from the staff of the school, parents and the local community.

Parent governors play a vital role on the Governing Body and their contribution is greatly valued. If you are interested in becoming a parent governor, please contact Glyn Whitworth, Chair of Governors, via the school office.

Contacting the governors: We welcome the views of parents and are always happy to discuss any concerns or ideas you may have to improve the school.
