Governing Body

The governing body is the school’s accountable body. It is responsible for the conduct of the school and for promoting high standards. The governing body aims to ensure that children are attending a successful school which provides them with a good education and supports their well-being.

The Governors can be contacted through the Clerk to the Governing Body at kggsclerk@kggs.org.

The Governors are present at all school events should you wish to speak to someone in person, and are always willing to answer any questions you may have.

Structure

The Governing Body is led by the Chair of the Governing Body, supported by the Vice Chair. The four routine committees - Steering, Resource Management, Standards, and Welfare - each have a Chair.

The Governing Body includes a set number of Parent Governors, Teacher Governors and Support Staff Governors.

For full details of the organisation, responsibilities and procedures of the Governing Body, please read the Terms of Reference, Code of Practice, Articles of Association and Funding Agreement (PDF).
