Marcham Governors

Our Governors


The main role of the governing body at Marcham CE Primary School is to help raise the standards and performance of the school. Governors provide a strategic overview of leadership and accountability in school: they support and, at the same time, challenge the headteacher and staff by asking questions, gathering views and evidence, and deciding what is best for the school. They make important decisions on ethos, policies and practice and are key to the effectiveness of the school. Governors at Marcham are actively involved and get a great deal of satisfaction from knowing that they make a significant contribution to the promotion of high quality teaching, a love of learning and the benefits the children gain from their efforts.


We have 3 committees which underpin the work of the governing body:

  • SICC – School Improvement and Curriculum Committee: They oversee and monitor the work undertaken as part of the School’s Improvement and Development plans.
  • Resources: They oversee and monitor issues relating to Health and safety, Pay and Personnel, Finances and Premises.
  • Foundation: As a Church of England school, a small number of our governors are appointed by the Parochial Church Council. They ensure that the character and ethos of the school as a Church of England school is upheld. They meet in their own right but are also members of the other sub-committees.
