Role of the Governing body

The Governing body is made up of people from different groups, including parents, teachers and other staff, representatives from our Trust partners which include the local authority, local business and community.

A governor’s term of office usually lasts for four years.

The role of Governors is to provide a strategic view of the school, to ensure accountability and to be a critical friend. The Governing body is responsible for the overall direction of the school. It is not responsible for day to day matters which is the responsibility of the Headteacher Mr Andrew Fell. Governors also set and monitor targets, the school budget and the effectiveness of policies to ensure all students have a broad and balanced curriculum.

If you would like any information about becoming a governor at North Huddersfield Trust School then please contact the Chair of the Governing Body, Mr Phil Weston, via the school.
