Central Barrow Schools Governing Body

Welcome to central Barrow schools Federated Governing Body which was formed on the 1st September 2022.


The Governing Body’s Vision:

The Federated Governing Body have a clear vision to ensure that the children achieve their best academically, emotionally, socially and physically and that staff are enabled and supported to achieve our vision.  We work with the Leadership Team to enact the vision and also to hold leaders to account.

The Federated Governing Body is reflective in practice and has a range of experiences and skills to fulfil the expectations of school governance. By taking part in regular training the Governors ensure they develop the skills they already have and keep informed about current educational policies. This enables them to be challenging where necessary and also to work strategically.

As the Federated Governing Body continues to develop their new structure our overarching goal is to ensure that the children of the Central Barrow School Federation can achieve their full potential in this ever-changing world.

The Governing Body’s main tasks are to:

  • set the aims and objectives of the school,
  • support and challenge the school’s leadership,
  • ensure that pupils receive high quality education,
  • oversee all financial matters relating to the school,
  • plan for future development and improvement.
