Our Governing Body
Welcome to the Governing Body pages of our website. My name is Noorian Riaz and I am the Chair of the Governing Body at Cranford Primary School.
Governors work alongside school staff and take decisions affecting the strategic direction of the school. Governors act as ‘critical friends’ and are responsible for holding the school to account and support the school in its endeavour to achieve excellence in all aspects of school life.
Our Governing Body consists of 12 Governors:
1 LA Governor (Chair of Governors)
Nominated by the LA and appointed by the Governing Body
1 Vice Chair
|Elected by other members of the Governing Body||Mrs Kerry Mulhair|
Ex Officio by virtue of office as Headteacher
2 Parent Governors
Elected by the parents and must be themselves parents or carers of children who attend the school at the time of the elections. All parents have the opportunity to vote at these elections.
1 Teacher Governor
Elected by a ballot of all teachers
7 Co-opted Governors
Elected by other members of the Governing Body because of their links with the local community or their particular skills and knowledge
