Our Governing Body


The Governors are proud to be a part of the team within Brigg Primary School. We aim to move the school forward and continue to improve standards.

We can be contacted by either email at admin.briggprimary@northlincs.gov.uk or writing to us at the school address.

What do we do?

The Governing Body, together with the Head Teacher, staff and Local Authority, is responsible for the school.

We provide the strategic direction for the school and provide support and challenge to the Headteacher. We hold the school to account for the standards it achieves and ensure that all the resources (including the school budget and staff) are properly used to meet the needs of all the children in our school and provide value for money.

The Governing Body appoints the Headteacher and delegates to the Headteacher the responsibility of the day to day running of the school. Individual governors have no power as such, and we cannot speak or act on behalf of the Governing Board – any decisions are made by the Board as a whole.

At Brigg Primary School we have three formal meetings of the full governing body every year, one each term. Governors work together in smaller groups throughout the year, dealing with particular responsibilities through committees and sub-committees on behalf of the full governing body. The committees usually meet once or twice a term, depending on the areas they cover. A key part of our monitoring role is carried out on one full day each term when Governors spend the whole day in school meeting with pupils and staff prior to the termly governor meeting.

Who are we?

The Governing Body is made up of four groups who represent the ‘stakeholders’ of the school – the staff, the parents, the community and the Local Authority. At Brigg Primary School we have a diverse and challenging board of governors. We come from a wide range of backgrounds, who bring a wide range of skills, experience and perspectives to the governing body.
