Governing Body

Campion School’s Governing Body governs rather than manages the school. It is there to give direction and focus by being a critical friend to the School and the Senior Leadership Team.

Governors are responsible for working with the Headteacher to think strategically about how to raise standards of achievement for all students at the school, for setting the budget and overseeing the curriculum. 

There are three categories of Governors: 

  • Community Governors
  • Parent Governors
  • Staff Governors

There are 5 Full Governing Body meetings per school year.

The Governors are also members of one or more of the following Sub-Committees:

·       Assets and Personnel Committee

·       Curriculum and Standards Committee


The normal term of office for school governors is four years. However, governors are volunteers who can leave at any time and can similarly be re-appointed or re-elected.

If you have any questions for, or wish to contact any of the governors, please email Emma Howard (Clerk to the Governors) -
