Meet the Governors
Thorns Primary Governing Board are a group of 9 people made up of School staff, parents and others with a keen passion to ensure that the children of Thorns Primary receive the best education possible. Governors have 3 main roles.
As a Governing Board, we have a range of expertise to ensure that these 3 functions are fulfilled. We meet regularly throughout the academic year as a Governing Board in order to carry out these functions. We meet as a Full Governing Board once each term when we all discuss, question and challenge the leadership of the School. We do not have Committees as such but conduct our work during our two full Governing Body meetings. We have two committee meetings each term, School Improvement and Finanance, Personnel, Premises. We have Link Governors which is when we visit School to carry out first-hand monitoring. We have the chance to talk to the children and to experience life at Thorns Primary for ourselves. We also visit School at other times for example to support with reading.
