Can you spare some time to help support our school?
We currently have a vacancy for a governor. If you think you might be interested and want to know more, please contact Mrs Hoyle at the school or on firstname.lastname@example.org
The Governing Body is responsible for overseeing the management of the school and is responsible for ensuring that legal and education requirements placed on the school are appropriately met.
The key focus of the Governing Body in recent years has continued to be on the raising of core education standards, whilst maintaining the school's outstanding approach to whole child development - thereby ensuring our children have the best possible foundation for secondary school education and life as young adults. Our aspiration is to be an outstanding school for the children of Gildersome.
In the interests of safeguarding, all members of the Governing Body have to have an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (BDS) check and a Section 128 check at the start of their membership.
The Governing Body of Gildersome Primary School operates under the guidance of the Code of Conduct recommended by Leeds City Council. A copy of the Code of Conduct can be found here.
