Dear parents/carers and friends of Lythe School

We would like to introduce ourselves as the Governing Body of Lythe CEVC School and give you some information about who we are and what we have achieved during this academic year. Please see the 'Current Governors' section for full details.

The Governors work in partnership with the headteacher to oversee the strategic development of the school and to help shape its vision and direction. We strive to have a good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the school and to challenge and support its senior management. The Governing Body also ensures that the school fulfils its statutory duties, including promoting inclusive policies in relation to special educational needs, race equality, disability and gender.

The full Governing Body meets at least five times a year - at least once in the autumn term, once (or more) in spring term and twice in the summer term. The meeting dates for the current academic year (2018/19) are as follows

  • Wednesday 19th September
  • Wednesday 5th December
  • Wednesday 13th February
  • Wednesday 3rd April
  • Wednesday 22nd May
  • Wednesday 16th July 

The meeting minutes approved at each full governing body meeting can be accessed by clicking the links above. 

There is also a Finance & Staffing committee which meets at least once a term. In addition, we have two 'groups' who deal with the following areas in more detail:

  • Curriculum & Standards
  • Spiritual Foundations

There are other committees which only function on an ad hoc basis. These include the Complaints Committee and the Disciplinary Committee. Information about the formal complaints procedure is available on the schools website together with details of all other Lythe school policies.

Individual governors have been been elected to the following roles for 2018/19:

Co-Chairs of Governors: Mrs Jo Stonehouse and Mrs Sarah Arnold

Vice-Chair of Governors: Mrs Kerry Rowe


The following governors have taken on the role of Link Governor for 2018/19:

Safeguarding – Mrs K Cornforth

SEN – Mrs S Metcalfe

Pupil Premium – Mrs K Rowe

E-Safety – Mrs S Arnold

Health and Safety – Mr S Pearson

Limits to the authority of the governors:

  • No individual governor has authority to make decisions alone. Decisions are made collectively by the whole governing body.
  • The governing body delegates management of the school to the Head Teacher.

 The governors of Lythe School are always open to communication with parents and we welcome the input of parents so that we can all work together for the good of all the children of Lythe school.


Become a Governor

If you are interested in serving as a school governor, please make this known to either the head teacher, the chair of governors or any member of the governing body. We have two elected parent governor places and five co-opted governor places which are open to anyone in the community with the right skill set and an interest in the school. A governor term of office lasts four years and a governor can be re-elected. Normally there will be changes in governors each year. So please let us know if you are interested.
