The Governing Body

The Governing Body of Coley Primary School meets three times a term and is responsible for setting the strategic framework of the school and monitoring its implementation. It acts as a 'critical friend' by holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.

  • approving school targets for student achievement
  • monitoring the school’s finances
