Our Governors


Ein Llywodraethwyr

2023 - 2024


We are very luck at Sketty Primary school to have a wonderful, supporting governing body team, The governing body has a strategic role working with the headteacher to set the aims and objectives of the school, agreeing policies, targets and priorities to achieve the objectives and monitoring and evaluating the aims and objectives in order to promote high standards of achievement. The headteacher has day to day management of the school.

How does a governing body work?

  • Works closely with the headteacher

  • Makes decisions democratically as a team

  • Often delegates decision making to committees or to individuals such as the headteacher

  • Meets at least once a term

  • Conducts most of its business through meetings, making use of relevant papers, guidance and advice from the headteacher and the local authority




What are the different categories of governor that make up a governing body?

There are:

  • parent governors;

  • LEA governors;

  • community governors;

  • additional community governors (only in an area served by a community council);

  • teacher governors and (non-teaching) staff governors as well as the headteacher.
