The Governors' Aim


Roughlee Church of England Primary School is proud to offer a school that provides a happy and safe environment for all children to develop to their full potential; where children's needs are fully understood and where Christianity is at the base of all our teachings whilst being understanding and respectful of other races, religions and cultures.

Our mission is to unite all pupils, staff, parents/carers and partners, into a community of love and respect; where all its members strive to achieve the very best for our children and all members of the community.

The strength of our governing body is in the collective knowledge, experience and expertise of its members.

The main roles of the governing body are:

1. To provide a strategic view

We help to decide the school's strategy for improvement so that our children learn most effectively and achieve the highest standards they can.

2. To act as a critical friend

We support and advise the headteacher and staff but we also monitor and evaluate the schools effectiveness by asking challenging questions.

3. To ensure accountability

We are responsible for ensuring good quality education in the school. We are answerable to the children, parents, local community and the Local Authority for the performance of the school.

The Governing Body uses The Local Authority Governor Services to clerk meetings and provide advice.They are contactable on 01254 220904





The Resources committee has responsibility for Health and Safety and school buildings, staffing and finance. Our duties include monitoring all building related plans, drawing up the staffing structure, ensuring performance management arrangements are carried out and preparing and monitoring the school budget.




The Curriculum/Standards Committee advises the Headteacher and the Governing Body on matters concerning the school curriculum. Our main duties are to ensure that the curriculum meets statutory requirements, to contribute to curriculum aspects of the School Development Plan and to monitor pupil progress.
