Chairs of Governors Welcome
On behalf of the Governors, I am pleased to welcome you and your child to Snettisham Primary School. I hope that your child will be very happy here and that you will take advantage of the many occasions to visit the school for special days and activities. The school has good links with the community and a very effective Friends committee.
Governors have a responsibility to ensure that the school is well managed but the responsibility for the day-to-day running of the school rests with the Executive Headteacher. Specific questions about your child’s education should be taken up with their class teacher or the Executive Headteacher but, should the need arise, you can contact the Chairs of Governors via the school.
We look forward to meeting at future school events.

The Role of the Governing Body
All schools in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. A key role is to act as a ‘critical friend’: to support, to challenge, to ask questions, and ultimately, to represent the school community.
The Governing Body works in close partnership with the headteacher, staff and the Academy Trust. Whilst the headteacher is responsible for the day to day running of the school, the governors are involved with teaching and learning.
Governors’ meetings are held once a term where governors monitor and evaluate the standards of teaching and learning and the impact that the school makes on children’s achievement and attainment. The Governing Body monitors how the school ensures that we achieve our national and locally set targets and the targets that we set ourselves.
