Itchen Abbas Primary School


We are fortunate to have a really strong mix of Governors at Itchen Abbas, with a Governing body made up of different types of Governors (Local Authority Nominated Governors, Parent, Staff and Co-opted Governors).  All our governors are equal,  our Governing body acts collectively for decision making, takes responsibility at a strategic level and acts as critical friend to the Headteacher and staff.

  6. Appointment and dismissal of staff

Details of the governors’ constitution are available here. The role of the school governors is to give a long-term strategic direction to how the school is run; to be critical friends to the school; and to ensure the school is accountable for its actions.

Meetings and minutes

The full governing body typically meet twice per term although additional meetings may be scheduled. Access to the minutes of these meetings is available on request from the school - please note that confidential items (such as discussion of personnel issues) will be withheld. There is always an unavoidable delay for publication because the minutes of a meeting are only approved at the next such meeting and cannot therefore be released earlier.
