School Governors

The governing body of Hatton Hill School plays a crucial role in the life and work of our school. Governors are drawn from different areas: staff; parents; the local community and local authority governors. The governing body can also co-opt additional help from individuals with particular expertise. School governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They must act together; they cannot act individually. The role of governor is an exciting and challenging one that offers a unique opportunity to understand more about how the school works and to help shape its future direction.
Hatton Hill School has an active and committed governing body with a shared desire to work in partnership with the school leadership team and staff to further improve the school thus providing the very best education for the children in our care.
The governing body is accountable for the strategic direction of the school and for the quality of education that it provides. At Hatton Hill Primary School, governors fulfil this role by:

  • Attending governing body meetings
  • Sitting on one or more of the 3 main sub-committees
  • Participating in joint staff and governor development events;
  • Supporting the school and representing the governing body at school events;
  • Keeping up to date with developments in the education sector and attending training and events provided by Sefton Council.

Becoming a Governor

Being a parent governor can be an enjoyable, worthwhile and challenging way to help the school. It is also a great opportunity to get to know the school community better and work with a great team of people.
Governors commit to the role for four years and when a vacancy comes up for a parent governor all parents are notified. All parents are encouraged to consider becoming a governor and if more than one person puts their name forward then an election of all parents takes place.
