Welcome toWestgate C.P.School and Nursery


Welcome to our Governors’ section

On behalf of all members of our Governing Body can I welcome you to this section of the website. Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

We have also provided a Register of Governor Interests and an Annual Statement of Issues for your information.


The Governing Body at Westgate C.P. School and Nursery:

The Governors are responsible for policy and strategy and the Headteacher is responsible for the day-to- day running of the school and ensuring that the policy and strategy agreed by the Governors is implemented. The Governing Body has a large number of legal responsibilities and amongst these are ensuring that the National Curriculum is properly delivered, arranging for religious education to be carried out, deciding how to spend the delegated budget and approving the many different school policies, such as those referring to discipline and behaviour and health and safety.
In this section of the website you can find out who the governors of our school are.

To carry out these responsibilities we have a number of committees that report to our regular meetings of the full Governing Body. These are:

  • Steering committee
  • Teaching and learning
  • Finance, personnel and premises

If you would like to contact the governors, please do so by either telephoning or emailing the school.


Mr John Dixon – Chair of Governors
