Meet the Governors

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.

We have also provided a Register of Governor Interests and an Annual Statement of their attendance at meetings in the last academic year.

The Local Governing Body of St Columba C. of E. Primary Academy

The local governing body meets on a monthly basis at the Academy in order to challenge and support us as we seek to improve the Academy for everyone.  The role of the Local Governing Body is to challenge, support and act as a critical friend, in driving forward the strategic development of the Academy, with similar guidance, challenge and support from the Trust Board. 

Governing Body minutes are available at the Academy if you would like to read them - you just need to pop in and speak to the office staff and ask to see the file.
