Storrington Primary


Our Governing body is made up of twelve local authority, co-opted and parent Governors.   All governors are volunteers who want to make a positive contribution to children's education by ensuring the highest standards of teaching, learning and welfare are maintained throughout our school.

The values and vision for leading the school are shared between our Governing body, Headteacher and Senior Leadership team. The Full Governing Body meet termly;  sub- committees focusing on different areas of school life, also meet each term.    Within the structure certain governors have a specific focus on key areas such as safeguarding, pupil premium and health and safety.   More information about how the Governing Body works and detailed information about each committee can be found in our Terms of Reference.

The Governing body is piloting for 2 terms from Spring 2022, a single model of governance where all matters are considered by the main Governing body and no sub-committees operate for this period.

Information and pictures of each of our governors is below.  By law we need to publish details of any business interests declared by governors together with their attendance at meetings over the last year and this is given here.  We are required to report if a governor is also a governor at another school and if they have a relationship with school staff - should that be the case it is documented alongside their profile below. 

West Sussex information about the role of School Governors can be found here.   

If you would like any more information about our Governors or are interested in applying to become a governor at our school then please contact our Clerk to Governors, Mr Steve Amos on 01903 742047 or  You can request a copy of the minutes from past meetings at the school office.
