School Governing Bodies are a combination of appointed, elected and ‘co-opted’ Governors. The way a Governing Body is made up is set out in the School’s Instrument of Government. Parliament has given a range of duties to School Governing Bodies in the Education Acts and the powers to carry these out. The role of the Governing Body is to oversee the work of the school.

The Governing Body at Roebuck Primary School and Nursery meet regularly and all the minutes of these full Governing Body meetings are made available at the school office for parents to see if they wish. There are also two committees who feed in to the full Governing Body - these are called the School Improvement Committee and the Resources Committee.

The Governing Body consists of the following members:

Ms A. Palmer
Acting Chairperson
Trust governor 
Mr M. Lewis Managing Director of the Harts Schools Trust - Trustee
Matthew Cox  Co-opted governor 
Nadia Hodges Trust governor 
Mrs C. Elson Staff governor
Mrs C. Farley Co-opted governor
Ms L. Young Headteacher
Mrs A. Hollick Parent governor
Mrs V. Upton Trust governor 
Mrs H. Cannon Parent governor 
Mrs M. Chapman Staff governor
Clerk: Mr R. Dale  




The scheme of delegation sets out the responsibilities of the Trust Directors, the Managing Director and the school governing bodies.
