Welcome to our Governors’ Section. 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured.


The Countess Gytha Primary School local governing board (LGB) is made up of the Head Teachers,  a representative from the teaching staff and volunteers from parents and the community. The local governing board meet three times a year.


 The core functions of the governing board are:


  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent


If you would like to contact any member of the Governing Body please do so through the school office.


The day to day management and running of the school is the responsibility of the Head Teachers and School Leadership Team (SLT).  It is their job to report to the governors so we can undertake our main functions as outline above.
