Welcome to our Governors’ section.

The governing board is the key strategic decision-making body of the school. Its role is to work with Trustees at The Heath Family (NW) MAT and ensure all statutory duties are met and the school is making good progress.

Governors are unpaid volunteers who have been appointed or elected on the basis of the skills they contribute to the board.

The governing board consists of XX members and all governors have a X-year term of office - apart from the Headteacher who remains on the board as long as they are in post. The structure is:

Halsnead Governors:
Mrs Denise Allen – Chair - Co-opted Governor
Mr Terry Byron – LA Governor
Mrs Anita Lawson - Parent Governor
Mr Andy Horrocks – Staff Governor
Miss Carol McDonough - Co-opted Governor
Mr Paul Stanley – Co-opted Governor
Miss Jill Sharp - Parent Governor

Miss Helen Taylor – Headteacher

From time to time working parties or sub committees may be formed to deal with short term matters; authority may be delegated from the governing board to these sub committees to make decisions on behalf of the full board.

The minutes from governing board meetings are available from the school upon request.  Decisions are recorded but individual voting records are not as the governing board acts as a corporate body in law.
