As a small governing body we do not have a committee structure. All issues are raised, discussed and debated by the full governing body.
However, in line with advice from the National Lead Governor, we prioritise the meeting's main content between teaching and learning, and finance over the year.
Responsibility For Finances
The governing body must oversee the school's finances and budgets which are managed by the headteacher and the school's senior administrator. This includes the cost of staff and resources.
The school is required to publish the salary details of any staff member whose gross salary exceeds £100k. However, no employee of Billingborough Primary School earns a salary of this value.

Staff Governor - Polly Carter
Having taught at Billingborough Primary School for almost 5 years, I am looking forward to a new challenge having recently been appointed staff and wellbeing governor. Although I am new to the role of governor, I look forward to representing the staff team and sharing the ethos and values in which we represent.
With most of my teaching experience is in KS1 and Early Years and I am passionate about creating a nurturing and inclusive environment for children to thrive in. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, going swimming, and walking my dog, Teddy.
Co-opted Governor - Jennifer Crummack
I am a parent of a pupil at Billingborough Primary School and I live in and run my own small business from the village.
My background is in education within the outdoors and in apprenticeships. My work was in a variety of environments and I delivered training and supported the development of students and staff to build their skills and enhance their learning experiences
My main aim in becoming a Governor is to support the school in delivering the best opportunity to all students. As a governor I understand that I will work on the board to ensure everyone’s voice is heard alongside monitoring the Leadership Team’s management of the schools strategy, vision, academic performance and finances.

I am looking forward to using my skill set for monitoring the school finances and working with the full governing board to provide effective governance throughout the school.
