New Road Primary School

Our Federation Governance

New Road Primary School is part of a Federation working in partnership with Copley Primary School, therefore our Federation has a single Governing Body overseeing the work of both schools.

The Governing Body has a variety of duties and responsibilities set out by law. The Governors are not responsible for the day-to-day running of the school, this is the job of the Headteacher and the Senior Management Team.

The areas of work that the Governors are involved in include the school's development and improvement plans, review of policies, monitoring of results and budget spending. 

The Governors at New Road and Copley Federation work alongside the Headteacher and SLT team to provide an environment that provides the best possible education, care and support for all the children in both schools.

See below for the list of all our Governors with their area of responsibility within the Federation.
