Governing Body

Westcott Church of England School is a Voluntary Aided School which means that our Governors have an important role in working with our Headteacher to determine the direction of the school.  They make decisions on matters of staffing, admissions, premises, curriculum, finance and health and safety.

Our governing body is made up of two staff governors, two parent governors, one local authority governor and seven Foundation governors.  We occasionally invite people with particular expertise to be associate members of the governing body; their role is to assist and advise the governors in the decision making process.
