Welcome to the Fittleworth CE Village School website from the Governing Body.
The Governing Body works hard to support the Headteacher, teaching staff and pupils with the aim of ensuring that Fittleworth Village School is the best that it can be.
The 14 members that make up the Governing Body are chosen by the local authority, the community, the Church, and parents. All our Governors have their own careers and responsibilities but they dedicate time to the school when they are able. Some are able to be in school most days whilst others bring financial expertise, strategic planning or more practical skills. All are highly valued!
As well as sharing a common desire to be involved in supporting the school, the Governing Body have statutory duties by which they are legally bound. The Governing Body is ultimately responsible for all matters relating to the school including teaching and learning, safeguarding, health and safety, staffing, premises and ensuring financial accountability and sustainability. The full Governing Body meets once every half term, while sub-committee meetings consider the more specific areas of staffing, curriculum and finance.
We hope you find our website full of useful information. Do let us know!
