The Edinburgh Primary School Governing Body is responsible for ensuring that every child attending the school receives the highest possible standard of education.


The Governing Body works closely with the head teacher, to set the school’s long term aims, ambitions and goals.


Individual governors also have specific responsibilities to monitor certain aspects of the school’s business. Below is a list of the current governors that form the Governing body.

The majority of the conversations and discussions that take place at governing body meetings are a matter of public record. This means that anyone, including parents, can ask to see a copy of the minutes of governing body meeting to see what was discussed and the decisions that have been made. If you want to see the governing body minutes please ask staff in the school office and they will be happy to arrange for you to see a copy.


Governing body meetings are important, and they are where we record our decisions, however a lot of the work that governors do involves visiting the school, talking and engaging with teachers, year group leaders and curriculum leaders. As the chair of governors, I meet with the head teacher once a month to discuss how the school is getting on with its ultimate aim of giving a great rounded education to all the children in the school.


If you have any questions relating to what the governing body does, or if you are interested in joining the governing body, please don’t hesitate to contact me via the school.
