Who we are?
Your Governing Body, in conjunction with the teaching and support staff, parents, pupils and Friends Of School (FOS) form an integral part of the organisation that is Trinity CE Primary School. The Governors are made up of representatives from the teaching staff, parents and the wider community. They are influential in many areas of school activity ranging from budget formulation, maintenance of building and grounds through to curriculum and staffing issues. For further information on who the Governors are, please refer to Meet the Governor section.
We meet six times throughout the year as a whole Governing Body and at other times in “Staffing & Curriculum” and “Building & Finance” committees.
As a governing body we work well with the staff and greatly appreciate the tremendous hard work that is put into making Trinity the successful school that it is. We are a forward thinking school and, collectively, always looking at ways in which we can improve and progress ensuring that the children always have a wide range of opportunities to learn and grow.
For further information about the Governors are, please refer to Governor FAQ section. Should anyone be interested in knowing more about the work the Governors do, want to meet with any of the Governors or join the Governing Body please contact the school. Alternatively we are frequently at School, so please feel free to come and chat to us.

As the governor responsible for safeguarding children, you will play an essential role in ensuring children in education are kept safe from harm.
Although there is no official restrictions on who may be a link governor, some LA’s recommend that the Safeguarding and Child Protection Governor should not be a parent governor or teacher governor as this could lead to them being compromised.
