Lovers' Lane Governing Body

 

Newark Lovers Lane primary school is a maintained school. The governing body is constituted under the School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012.

 

The governors act in the best interests of the pupils at the school by providing strategic leadership, holding the head teacher to account and making sure the school’s money is well spent.

       
     
 
   

 

 

 

The Governing Body is not responsible for the day to day operation of the school – that is a matter for the Headteacher.

 

The Chair of the Governing Body is Zoe Codd. The Governing Body has three committees which support it:-

 

  • All governors are also members of the Strategic Development and Pupils Committee, which is chaired by Ian Holden.

     

  • All governors are also members of the Finance, General Purposes and Personnel Committee which is chaired by Zoe Codd.

     

  • Zoe Codd and Nickie Pringle sit on the Pay Committee. The Committee is chaired by Zoe Codd.

     

  • Zoe Codd and Ian Holden sit on the Data Committee. The Committee is chaired by Ian Holden.

     

 

The make up (constitution) of the Governing Body is

  • One headteacher

  • Six co-opted governors

  • One Local Authority governor

  • Two parent governors

  • One staff governor
