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 make up (constitution) of the Governing Body is:

 

  • One headteacher

  • Six co-opted governors

  • One Local Authority governor

  • Two parent governors

  • One staff governor

 

Who's Who on the Governors?

 

On our governing body we have a mixture of parent, staff, Local Authority and co-opted (community) governors.

At present our governors are as follows:

 

  • Parent: Danielle Cragg (Chair of Governors)

  • Co-opted: Ian Talbot (Vice Chair of Governors)

  • Co-opted: Anna Martin (Principal at Magnus Academy)

  • Co-opted: Le Vu

  • Co-opted:  Vacancy

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