Trail : home / Our School : Governing Body

Coniston CE Primary School has 9 Governors who bring a range of experience to help our School achieve its vision. Governors are volunteers but play an important role in ensuring the school provides the very best education for its pupils.

Role of the Governing Body :

• Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

• Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;

• Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

There are three sub-committees that meet at least once a term. These committees carry out additional work which cannot be fitted into the meetings of the full governing body, e.g. policy reviews and decisions on staffing and premises.

Our sub-committees are:

• Resources

• Curriculum

• Community


Attendance at Governors meetings, both full governing body meetings and sub-committees, is always good. A register of attendance for 2014-15 can be found by clicking the link below.

Declaration of Interests

Governors are expected to declare any business interests which may conflict with the work they do on the governing body. None of our governors have a connection with a business which has dealings with the school.

If you have any queries regarding any of this information, or if you would like further information about our school governors, please do not hesitate to contact the Clerk to the Governors, Mr Nigel Coe ( or our school administrator ( ).
