At Daresbury Primary School we have a team of governors that work as volunteers to support the school. Their role is to support and challenge the Headteacher, to help set the vision and strategic direction of the school and to ensure that our school is the very best it could be.
Governors have a wide range of responsibilities. These include tasks such as:
- Ensuring that the school meets its legal responsibilities
- Setting the school budget
- Making decisions about the school buildings and premises
- Setting school policies
- Appointing staff and making decisions about current staffing
- Looking at how well groups of pupils are performing and ensuing action is taken if there are any concerns.
We have three Full Governing Body meetings each year. We also have three main sub committees who meet regularly each term. These are Teaching & Learning, Premises & Safeguarding and Finance & Personnel. Other committees meet as and when required'. To 'We have three Full Governing Body meetings each year.

Other committees meet as and when required.
During Full Governing Body meetings we look at a wide range of information to find out how well the school is performing. Our Principal, Mrs Roberts, provides a detailed Headteacher's Report at these meetings but we also look at data and independent reports so that we can make our own decisions about how well things are going. To support the work that goes on in meetings, some governors also try to visit the school as often as possible.
We are proud to have a committed Governing Body that is made up of a team of individuals with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. The
