Governance

Welcome to our Governors’ section. 


Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS/TRUSTEES (GOVERNORS): The board of Directors/Trustees (often referred to as Governors) of Worth Primary School Trust Ltd. sets the strategic direction of the school and is responsible for virtually every aspect of policy, staffing, funding etc. without getting closely involved in the day to day or professional working of the school. The Headteacher is also the CEO (chief executive officer) and AO (accounting officer), being accountable to the Board democratically, working within its levels of delegation. The SBM (school business manager) is also the CFO (chief financial officer) & company secretary/clerk to the Board. The school and grounds are owned by ‘Worth Primary School Academy Trust (Ltd.)’ which is a limited company and an exempt charity established on 01.04.2013.
