Governing Body

The Governing Body of Upperthong Junior and Infant School, Holmfirth, is a group of 15 volunteers – with representatives from parents, the community, the local authority and staff including the Head Teacher. We also have a professional clerk. All Governors are committed to making a positive contribution to the school and the education of all pupils.

The Governing Body is collectively responsible for:

  • Ensuring clarity of the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding the head teacher to account for achievement of the School Improvement Plan - including the quality of teaching, pupil’s progress & achievement and pupil’s behaviour and safety.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure that its resources are managed effectively.

The Head Teacher and the Leadership Team are able to draw on our skills to support and strengthen their decision making, monitor their programme of continuous school improvement and ensure that the school fulfils all statutory obligations.
