Governance

Ashton's governing body is a team of eight individuals, including the Headteacher and one member of teaching staff. Most of the group have their own separate jobs, and they all give their time and expertise for the good of the children at the school.

The school has a 'manager' (the Headteacher), but the governing body is ultimately responsible for the educational achievement of the children and the welfare of everybody at school. Together, the governing body and the school leaders set the strategic priorities and then monitor progress towards those priorities.

The full governing body (FGB) meets at least five times each year. There are also two committees: A resources committee (covering financial, personnel and premises matters) and a Learning and Wellbeing committee (covering children's progress and development both academically and personally.)


Join the governing team!


We are on the lookout for motivated people who would like to share their time and skills with us. If that's you, then please get in touch.

The governing body as of March 2017 looks like this:
