Longwood Primary School

School Governors

We would like to welcome you to the Governors section on our school website. We hope you enjoy looking through the website to find out about Longwood Primary school and see some of the wonderful pictures and work that our children are currently doing.

The Governors on Longwood’s Governing Board work with the Head Teacher Mrs James and her staff to ensure Longwood pupils get the best from their time in the school. Mrs James with assistance from the Senior Leadership team is responsible for day-to-day management of the school. The Governors, in co-operation with the Head Teacher, set the school’s aims, strategies, and policies and fulfil other important roles. Over the years the Governing Body has taken many important strategic decisions that have influenced the life of the school, including becoming part of the Tame Valley Cooperative Learning Trust in 2013.

The Governing Body are the strategic planners of the school and we:

Appoint the Head Teacher who is responsible for the day to day management of the school
Agree policies and practice which allows the Head Teacher and staff to carry out their responsibilities
Agree principles and targets for improvement
Support and challenge the Head Teacher
Individual Governors will also be involved in some of the following:

The financial management of the school
Head Teacher performance management
School improvement plan
Staff appointments


Our Governors

All Governors, once appointed, share the collective responsibilities and work as a team. 

Monitoring is carried out by all governors focusing on issues highlighted in the School 

Improvement Plan and several governors also take on other responsibilities e.g. health and safety.

We are proud of our school and feel privileged to support Mrs James and the staff on the journey of continuous improvement in delivering a varied and  stimulating education for our children.
