Dosthill Primary Academy


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.
