Crick Primary School's Governing Body (GB)


Welcome to the Governors’ information page.

The Governing Body (GB) was reconstituted under the School Governance (Constitution, England) in July 2017, and consists of twelve members. Staff and Parent governors are elected by their peers, Co-opted governors are appointed by the GB, and the Local Authority governor is appointed by Northamptonshire County Council. All governors have full voting rights on the board and on the sub committees they belong to, unless a conflict of interest has been declared.

There are six full GB meetings a year. There are two sub committees which meet at least once per term and each governor sits on one or two. These sub committees work on behalf of the full GB and feedback information and recommendations for ratification.


Finance & Personnel – this committee oversees all aspects of recruitment, staffing levels and performance.  It sets the policy for the school’s finance and closely monitors the school’s budget and spending. It also has responsibility for health and safety.

School Performance - this ensures that the statutory elements of the National Curriculum are being covered to the breadth and depth expected, through detailed monitoring of pupil progress and attainment. Governors make statistical comparisons to ensure that aspirational targets are set for our pupils and ensure strategies are in place to achieve them. Pupil Premium funding is carefully monitored to ensure spending has a direct, positive impact on the individual, entitled pupil. 

All governors are expected to be familiar with the school and its daily life, and to take on further specific roles on behalf of the GB. Governors regularly attend training sessions and briefings from Northamptonshire County Council and other bodies. We enjoy close links with other local schools’ governing bodies and share expertise and best practice. The GB sets the school’s ethos and values, and acts as a strategic critical friend to the school to ensure that decisions taken are in the best interest of the school’s children. We are not involved in the day to day running of the school.
