Who are the Governors?
The Local Governing Body of the School is made up of people from a variety of backgrounds, who are representative of parents, staff, and the local community. In addition to our Local Governing Board, Peterborough Keys Academies Trust (PKAT) are governed by both members and trustees.
Longthorpe Governors are displayed below. Further information on structure, attendance, business interests can be found in the documents section towards the bottom of the page.
The Governing Body is here to support you and your child through your child’s school career and is committed to the school and its aspirations for every pupil to achieve their full potential; to succeed, soar and excel.
What Do They Do?
School governors work with the Headteacher and are responsible for setting the strategic direction of the school. The governing body decides what they want the school to achieve, they do this by agreeing a framework with targets, and agreeing policies, in consultation with the head teacher. The governing body then monitors and evaluates the implementation and effectiveness of the framework and policies.
One of the most important aspects of the work of the governing body is to support the staff, parents and pupils, this is done by regular visits to the school (see visit reports at the bottom of this page).
In this school the governing body is organised into the committees below. Meetings are held at least once each term and committees meet in addition to main Governing Body meetings. A register of Governor interests and attendance can be found at the bottom of this page.
