There are nine governors at Corringham and they are elected on a four year cycle.
If you would like to contact us then please do so through our Clerk, Mrs C Hammerton at the school address.School Governors are local people who have a particular interest in education and who are willing to give some time to school matters.
They are usually local Council representatives, community representatives, parents and teachers. They have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They can only act together, they cannot act individually.
Governors are appointed to help decide what is taught, set standards of behaviour, interview and select staff and decide how the school budget is spent.
What are the roles of Governing Body?
1. Strategic – set the future direction of the school with the Headteacher.
2. Participate in appointments of staff, including the Headteacher and regulate staff conduct and discipline.
3. Statutory obligations – that the school is a safe learning environment, that all staff are DBS checked.
4. To Monitor and Evaluate – to ensure that the teaching staff are delivering a high standard of education to all the children in a safe & happy learning environment.
5. To hold the School to account in challenging the data presented or gleaned from monitoring visits, in gathering views, and asking constructive questions.
6. To keep updated by training, going on courses in order to keep abreast of the changes and developments within education.
7. Ambassadorial – Support the School by attending its social events, such as the school plays, its services and concerts, thereby ensuring that the school is at the forefront of the Community.
All parents/carers who have a complaint or grievance are asked to contact the school in the first instance in order to give staff time and opportunity to resolve matters, however, if they feel that the problem has not been resolved satisfactorily, then they should contact the Chair through the Clerk at the school address.
