Upton Cross Primary School


Governors are the strategic leaders of our schools and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. The core purpose of the Governing Body is to take an active role in both challenging and supporting the school ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Upton Cross has a large and thriving Governing Body who are dedicated to the school and are effective in helping define the strategic direction of the school and questioning and challenging to ensure excellent practice across all areas of school development.

As in other multi-academy trusts, our Local Governing Body is accountable to Trust Directors and plays a fundamental advisory role to this higher Board. For more information about the Learning in Harmony Trust’s governance structures, please visit the dedicated Trust page on our website. 



The following is a list of governing body members and their area of responsibility.
