Aragon Governing Body

The Governing Body of Aragon Primary School ensures a transparent recruitment process and governors have been appointed following nomination and election according to statutory guidance. Our Governing Body consists of eleven elected Governors and four Associate Governors and includes members of staff, parents, the Local Authority and those co-opted from the local community.

All volunteer their services and time and have been elected because of their specific knowledge and skills essential for the effective governance of the school. Terms of office are for 4 years with the Chair and Vice Chair requiring annual election

Full Governing Body Meetings and Committee Meetings are held every term and along with Ms Davey, Headteacher, who is responsible for the day to day management and control of the school, we provide the school's strategic focus and direction. We are entrusted with ensuring the clarity, vision and ethos of the school, the strategic leadership and accountability and by ensuring financial probity.

The Governing Body’s Code of Conduct is strictly adhered to and signed annually, it is also our duty to publish our Register of Interests, set out for each current governor and those which have served at any point over the past 12 months. This includes any relevant business/pecuniary interests of governors, details of any other educational establishments they govern and any material interests arising from relationships between governors; or, relationships between governors and members of school staff (including spouses, partners and relatives). Such declarations will be recorded in the Register of Business Interests, a copy of which is held in the school office and will also be published here on the website.

At the commencement of all Governing Body Meetings, Governors are asked to declare whether they have any pecuniary or personal interests, this is documented in the minutes of the meeting and the appropriate form completed if interests have been declared.

The role of governor can be a challenging one, it is rewarding to be a representative of an organisation that has such a positive impact on the children that attend and the community it serves. All decisions we make are always in the best interest of the school, the pupils, the staff and the parents/ carers.

How to contact us:

This can be arranged via the school office or you can contact us at governors@aragonprimary.merton.sch.uk.
