The governing body of Barn Croft Primary is required to fulfil following three key roles:

  • Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and the strategic direction of the school;
  • Hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;

The day-to-day management of the school remains the responsibility of the Headteacher and senior leadership team.

The membership comprises of:

  • 2 elected parent governors
