At Potters Gate, the Governors, Headteacher and Staff work to constantly improve the quality of the education we provide to our children.

Our Governors are fundamental to the success of our school and work at a strategic level with the Headteacher and staff in managing budgets and resources, considering and applying Government legislation, hiring staff and reviewing curriculum and teaching. Governors are supported by Surrey County Council with extensive training and advice services.

There are great benefits to Potters Gate C of E  Primary School in having a diverse and broadly based Governing Body, but we also hope that Governors enjoy their role at the school and relish the chance to make a difference for local children.

There are 2 committees which all governors attend in addition to the Full Governing Body meetings. The committees are the Children and Learning Committee and the Resources Committee.

Declarations of interest are declared and reviewed at the Full Governing Body, the Curriculum and Learning Committee and the Resources Committee meetings and are recorded in the minutes.
