At Lindal and Marton Primary School we have a very active Governing Body. Our Governors are skilled, knowledgeable and fully committed to the vision and ambitions for the school.

We have two committees, the Staffing, Curriculum and Standards Committee, who are also responsible for safeguarding and the Buildings and Finance Committee who are also responsible for Health and Safety. Each committee meets four times a year with a full governors meeting taking place approximately two weeks after.

Term of office for all governors is 4 years. The constitution of our governing board is as follows:

  • 1 LA governor
  • 3 Parent governors
  • 1 Staff governor
  • 1 Head teacher
  • 3 Co-opted governors
  • 1 Associate governor
