Our Governing Body

A Melrose Learning Trust School

Governors work closely with headteachers, school staff and representatives from Melrose Learning Trust.  The governors meet every term as a whole ‘Governing Body’, as well as meeting in smaller groups as members of committees when required. Governors are appointed as part our our School Leadership Team which makes strategic decisions about:

  • The premises, (including health and safety issues)
  • The interviewing and selection of staff
  • School budget and staffing decisions
  • The curriculum

Our overall aim is to improve the outcomes for Easington Church of England Primary School so that pupils achieve the highest standards, and for the pupils to feel secure and happy within the school environment.
