Meet the Governors

In accordance with the Department for Education's requirement for all governing bodies, the three core strategic functions of the Governing Body of Botley C of E Primary School are:

1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

2. Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;

3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its budget is well spent.


In addition, as a Church of England school the Foundation Governors ensure that we meet our Terms of Union with the National Society from when we founded in 1855.  

Our Governors bring a wide variety of experience and expertise to the school, as shown within their pen portraits. 


You can contact the Governing Body through the Chair of Governors via the school office.


If you would like to have copies of the minutes of Governing Body meetings, please email the school office and we will provide them for you.
