Governors

Welcome!

The Local Governing Board at Dosthill Primary Academy is fully committed to working together to ensure your children thrive, enjoy their learning and strive to achieve their full potential across the widest curriculum we can offer.

Our role  as governors has changed since we joined Fierte Multi Academy Trust two years ago; we have a cohesive team who consistently support, question and challenge the headteacher and her staff. As Link Governors we are in school regularly, seeing for ourselves how your children are thriving. We meet with key members of staff and talk with your children about their work. In addition the Chair and Vice Chair are invited to attend, and sometimes take part in reviews led by Fierte.

We would welcome anyone interested in joining us as a governor. We have had several changes recently, saying goodbye to longstanding, valued members including Mr. Terry Dix, Rev. Louise Shaw and Mr. Chris Weston. We have recruited replacements but further changes are pending so we would love to hear from you if you are interested.

Chair of Governors


The Governing Body are the strategic leaders of our school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education.

Their purpose, reflected in the law, is to ‘conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school’.  They have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  2. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
  4. We are fortunate to have a strong Governing Body who are committed and work with staff to ensure that all learners achieve and fulfil their potential.
