Governors

Benchill Primary School's Chair of Governors is Mr J McKie. If you have any questions about governance at Benchill Primary School please email chairofgovernors@benchill.manchester.sch.uk

Governors are expected to give their opinion on a range of issues relating to school but they do not get in involved in the day to day operational management of the school.  Parent and Staff Governors are elected and any vacancies will be advertised in school.  In addition anybody who is interested in becoming a Governor can contact the Headteacher. Governors serve for a fixed term unless they choose to resign in that period.

Governors are not expected to have highly specialised knowledge. There is training available to Governors throughout the year on a range of issues. Some of this training is provided in-house other training is provided by the local authority. 

Upcoming Governors' meetings are:

Full Governors 27th September 2017
