The Governing Body

We have an active Governing Body at Hendal Primary School. Our Parent Governors are approachable during the school day. Members of the Governing Body regularly come into school assemblies and to work with the children in class.

The purpose of the Governing Body is to

  • Help the school to set high standards by planning for the schools future, and setting targets for school   improvements.
  • To be a critical friend to the school, in good and bad times, offering the school its support and advice.
  • To help the school to be responsive to the needs of parents and community and make the school more accountable to the public for what it does.

Below is the Governing Body constitution for Hendal Primary School. A copy of the Governing Body Constitution document can be accessed within the Constitution area of the Governors section.

The Chair of the Governing Body is Mr Terry Carter.

Mr Carter may be contacted either through the school office or by emailing
