Kimberley Governing Body
The Governing Body comprises: up to 8 community members appointed by the directors, up to 4 parent governors elected by parents, up to 2 staff governors appointed by the LGB, 1 ex-officio headteacher and the CEO.
The Governing Body has three key strategic functions:
- To ensure the clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school;
- To oversee and hold the headteacher and staff to account for the educational performance of the school; and to oversee effective financial performance of the school.
The Board is not responsible for the day to day operation of the school – this is a matter for the headteacher who is accountable to the Governing Body.

Declarations of Interests 2018 / 2019
All Governors are required, in September each year, to complete a Declaration of Interest form. The Clerk to the Governors at the School prepares a formal report to the Governing Body confirming the extent of Governor compliance with this requirement and setting out details of all interests. For the year 2017/2018 there was 100% compliance. No interests were declared. The Register of Governor interests is available at the School for inspection on request to the Clerk.
The declarations show that no Governors have any direct indirect pecuniary or non-pecuniary interests other than the following:
Mrs A Gray: Governor of Kimberley Primary School
Mrs L Braithwaite: sibling of CEO of EMET Trust
No other interests declared.
