Castle School


Our Governing Body is an active, supportive and representative group whose members are fully involved in all aspects of school life; working closely with the staff, parents and pupils to ensure outstanding provision for all who learn and work together at Castle.

The Governing Body is made up of a combination of 16 appointed, elected or co-opted members.

These include:

  • Parent
  • Local Authority
  • Co-opted
  • Teacher
  • Support Staff

Governors have a general responsibility for the effective management of the school, acting within the framework set by National Legislation and by school policies.  They are responsible to parents, the Local Authority and the Secretary of State for this management.

The Governors delegate to the Headteacher the detailed decisions about the day-to-day running of the school.
