The Principles of Governance

We are very fortunate to have such a supportive group of Governors who are committed and focussed upon wanting the very best for our community and the children of Shotton Primary School.


The purpose of the Governing Body is to conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement.  Its three core strategic functions are:


  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

  • Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and the performance management of staff; 

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
