Our Governing Body

Welcome to our Governors’ section

Every school has a Governing Body. The Education (No 2) Act, 1986, states that from 16th September 2013 the Governing Body will consist of 2 Parent Governors, 1 Staff Governor, 1 Headteacher and 4 Co-Opted Governors.  

 

Briefly the Governors’ duties are:

  • To see that each school is conducted in accordance with the Education Acts.
  • Finance - as it affects the needs of the school
  • To see that the premises are kept in a good state of repair and to direct how the premises might be used out of school hours.
  • To assist in the appointment of all staff in the school.
  • To exercise general responsibility for the welfare of the school.
  • Governors have always had responsibilities regarding the School’s Curriculum, but with the introduction of the National Curriculum, their duties in this area have been clearly defined.
  • Full Governors’ meetings are held six times a year. 
  • If you wish to contact the Governors for any reason, you may do so direct or through the Clerk to Governors, via the School Office on 365411.

Julie Cook

Chair of Governors

My previous experience of being a Governor was several years ago when my own children were younger. I have been a Governor at Victoria Road since June 2016 and I am one of the Safeguarding Governors.

In a past life I was a Business Manager for Plymouth City Council and am now employed as an Executive Assistant for a local IT firm, Delt Shared Services. 

I have lived in Plymouth since a young age and live in the west of the city.
