The Governors at Cawthorne School are a group of unpaid volunteers. They are like a board of directors who make decisions about how this school should be organised. They meet at least once a term as a full governing body but also meet as part of committees – Finance, Strategy or Personnel. Together they represent this school, the local community and the church. Governors are appointed or elected to help decide what is taught, set standards of behaviour, interview/select staff and decide how our school budget is spent. The focus of their work is to ensure that Cawthorne School raises standards of achievement and attainment as well as delivering high quality learning opportunities to all our children. They act as a “critical friend” supporting and promoting the interests of this school, the law, the parents and most importantly our children.
We are pleased to announce that three new parent governors have been appointed:
Katherine Allott, Gary Booth and Lisa Worthy.
This means that the Governing Body has a full complement of governors and its re-constitution is complete.
