What do the Pensford Primary School Governors do?
As part of The Partnership Trust, our Local Governing Body (LGB) plays a full and active role in supporting and challenging the school leadership team at Pensford. The Governing Body at Pensford School is made up of a range of people from many different backgrounds. They include Parents, Staff, and Co-opted Governors. We try to balance the Governing team with people who have skills that can be used to help the school develop and work within the Partnership Trust's rules and guidance. You can find out more about governance within the Partnership Trust by visiting the Trust's Governance page. A review of the Trust's governance as a whole took place in 2021 and this letter from the chair of the board illustrates the huge strength of the ethos that runs through our Trust and our school, as well as the very significant strength of governance across our Trust.

Quote from an existing Parent Governor: "Being a parent governor is very rewarding - and certainly not as daunting or time consuming as I had thought. It is an ideal way to learn more about the education system and to support the school to provide its best for my children"
