We are very proud of our school and our Christian ethos is the basis for every decision we make. The governors, together with our Head teacher, Teaching and Support Staff, all work extremely hard to ensure every child has the help and support they need to reach their full potential.

All of our governors work incredibly hard to support the Head and Staff and are dedicated to ensuring each child has a cheerful and inspirational time whilst they are with us. Each governor plays a full and equal part in the running and management of the school and bring experience from home and work.   There are sometimes vacancies; any anyone interesting in taking on this challenging but interesting and rewarding role should contact the Chair or Clerk via the school office.


The Governing Body has the final accountability to the Secretary of State for Education for the running of the school. We set, agree and oversee budgets, monitor the implementation of changes in the law, ensure the national curriculum is being taught, ensuring all pupils having equal access to education as well as helping to formulate the vision and aims of the school.   We ensure that we are well informed by subscribing to the National Governors Association and scrutinising internal, local and national information ensuring the school and its resources are utilised well to provide the best outcomes for all our children.

Our Governors meet regularly throughout the year, as a Full Governing Body and in sub-committees (Finance, Ethos and Standards and Achievements).  The Governors have a close relationship with the Head Teacher and staff in order to provide a source of support and challenge. Governors are often in school, formally and informally, keeping in touch with school life.

Contact with Governors

Governors can be contacted for issues causing concern to parents or for any other reason. If there are general issues with the running of the school, governors are always open to approaches, please feel free to speak informally. However, the role means that governors are remote from day-to-day running and it may be more beneficial to contact your child’s class teacher or the Head Teacher. Letters should be directed via the school office and are, of course, treated with utmost confidentiality.

Iron Acton Primary School Governing Body consists of:

  • Clerk to the Governing body
  • Head Teacher;
  • 2 parents; elected by parents and carers of children each school;
  • 1 staff member
  • 1 local authority (South Glos council) appointed
  • 2 foundation governors appointed by the church
  • 3 co-opted members from a range of areas

This ensures a good balance between staff, parents and others community members and interested parties.
