Constitution of The Governing Body

The governing body of WVPS is made up of 12 governors with the following structure:

  • 1 Headteacher

  • 3 parent governors

  • 6 community governors

  • 2 staff governors


What do governing bodies decide?

School governors and the head teacher are responsible for the overall educational and financial health of the school and will make decisions about:

  • setting and monitoring the school’s aims and policies;

  • agreeing and monitoring the school’s budget;

  • appointing staff, including the head teacher; and

  • ensuring the school premises are maintained and improving the school’s environment.


Governors make sure that:

  • the standards of achievement are raised;

  • the National Curriculum is taught;

  • the school provides for all its pupils including those from ethnic minority backgrounds and with special needs; and

  • the school encourages pupils’ spiritual, moral and cultural development.
