The role of the school governors is to ensure high standards of achievement for all children and young people in the school by:

  • Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

At any time, our governing body will have a mix of each of these types of governors:

  • Parent - elected by parents and serve a term of four years.
  • Staff - elected by the staff of Hill View Primary School.
  • Local authority - appointed by Halton Borough Council.
  • Co-opted

The governing body of Hill View Primary School has, in accordance with the ‘Instrument of Government’ a total number of 14 members. This shall consist of four Parent Governors, one Local Authority Governor, one Staff Governor, one Head Teacher and seven Co-opted Governors. Currently not all vacancies are filled.

The responsibilities and powers have to be exercised in partnership with the headteacher and staff.  Governors do not intervene in the day-to-day running of the school. When there are weaknesses in the school they have a duty to take action.

Name and address of chair of the Governing Body:

Mr Karl Ashton
