Governing Body

Governance Structure

Members of the Trust

Members ensure that the Trust adheres to the Articles of Association. They appoint some of the trustees and can remove trustees in exceptional circumstances.

The Board/Governing Body

The Board (also known as the Governing Body) carries final responsibility for the Trust. The Board is made up of governors who are at one and the same time charity trustees and company directors. The key functions of governance include ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupil, and the performance management of staff; ensuring the financial and operational performance of the schools, making sure that money is well spent.

Several of the governors were appointed in November 2017 following the requirement that governance should be strengthened following the last Ofsted Report.

The Chair of Governors is Mr Byron Chatburn.

Contacting Governors

Please note that Governors do not intervene on behalf of parents or other members of the community. Please contact the school through the normal channels should you wish to speak to someone about a concern and the staff will ensure that the right person deals with this for you.

All correspondence to members of the Governing Body should be addressed to them at the Humphrey Perkins School, Cotes Road, Barrow Upon Soar, LE12 8JU.

If you wish to contact a governor in any other way please call or email the PA to the Headteacher, Deb Philips, either through the school switchboard or by email on d.phillips@humphreyperkins.leics.sch.uk

The Chair of Governors can be contacted on b.chatburn@humphreyperkins.leics.sch.uk
