Welcome to

Exton & Greetham CE Primary School

Governance and Financial Information

The aim of the Governing Body at our school is to work with the staff in supporting school improvement in line with the school vision.


We do this in five main ways:

  • Monitoring the performance and progress of our children
  • supporting the staff to help them teach and care for our children
  • working with the school to decide how the resources of the school are best used
  • Planning ahead so that the performance of our children and our school continues to improve
  • Contributing to school life through visiting the school and helping with events


The governors are representative of all the key groups involved in our school: parents, staff, the community and the Church. We meet together at least once a term as a whole team and in sub-groups focussing on areas such as the curriculum and finance.


We are always keen to hear your views and hope that this page will help you to understand better the role of the Governors, who we are, and why we are serving as Governors.


The Governors meet five times a year as a full governing body. There is also a business committee which meets separately to focus on the financial management of the school, staffing and premises.
