Kings Road

Primary School

Excellence without Compromise


Governors have responsibility for the effective management of the school, working within the frameworks set out by Trafford Local Authority and National Legislation. 


Governors have a key role to play in helping our school to provide the best possible education for all our children.  With their help, we can all raise standards and ensure that every child in our school achieves their full potential.  The core role and functions of the governing board are to; 


  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; 
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff; and 
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.   

The governing body consists of the Headteacher, a member of the school staff, LA representatives, members co-opted from the local community and parent governors.  Each governor serves a four-year term. 


Governance Structure  

Full Board: The full board of governors meets three times a year as standard. However, there may be additional times when the board meets, for example for the appointment of a new headteacher. 


Committees: Kings Road has committees for key aspects of school life and meet three times a year:  


  1. Curriculum committee  (Chair – Mr Peter O’Keefe) 
  2. Finance and building committee (Chair – Mr Peter O’Keefe) 
  3. Personnel committee (Chair – Mr Peter O’Keefe) 
  4. Headteacher performance management committee.  


Individual named governors: For areas of school life which are specifically important or where it is a statutory obligation, school has governors with specific oversight and delegated responsibility.
