On behalf of the Governors of Litton Primary School, I would like to offer a warm welcome to parents, carers, children and their families. Litton Primary is an outstanding school as graded by Ofsted and the recent Church inspection.
The school ensures that each child is nurtured and supported in their academic learning, development as individuals and understanding of local and national communities. All our governors are approachable and always happy to speak and listen. We look forward to meeting you within our friendly school community.

About the Governance:
Governing bodies are the strategic decision makers and vision setters in every school. They play a vital role in ensuring the best possible education for every child by creating robust accountability for school leaders.
The governing body has 3 core functions supported with a School Improvement Plan:
1) Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
2) Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school, its pupils and the performance management of staff.
3) Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure the money is well spent.
We have a Governing Body that meets 4 times each year, and 2 committees that meet every half term. The Education committee is concerned with the learning and teaching in the school, safeguarding, and special educational needs and disabilities. The Resources committee is concerned with finance, staffing, safety and the buildings and grounds of the school.
