Lymington (C of E) Aided Infant School has a dedicated team of Governors who are either elected as Parent Governors, are members of staff or appointed as Foundation Governors or Local Authority Governors. They remain on the Governing Body for a period of four years and may be re-elected if no other candidates come forward.

All governors are members of the Full Governing Body (FGB) and meet collectively eleven times in an academic year. The FGB works closely with the Headteacher to set the aims and objectives for the school and set the policies and targets for achieving those aims. They monitor the progress the school is making towards these achievements and provide a source of challenge and support to the Headteacher. As we are a Church of England School, in addition to having the Vicar of St Thomas’ Church on our Governing Body we also have a governor specifically linked to the Spiritual Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) to ensure we can fully demonstrate the Christian Life of the School.

Each governor on the board has a specific responsibility, eg: Safeguarding; Health and Safety; Human Resources; Data; Teaching and Learning; Finance; Special Educational Needs and Disability. Assisting and challenging both the curricular and financial aspect of the School Development and School Improvement Plan.
