e Purpose of the Governing Body
The Governing Body is the school's accountable body. It is responsible for the conduct of the school and for promoting high standards. The Governing Body aims to ensure that children are attending a successful school which provides them with a good education and supports their well-being.
The instrument of Government is a legal document that outlines the number and type of governors for Sherburn School.
Sherburn Church of England School has the following number of Governors.
Four parent governors
Two Local Authority governors (i.e. they have to be approved by NYCC)
Two staff governors
Two community governors
Two foundation governors (who represent the Diocese of York)
There is also a Clerk to the Governing Body.
The Governing Body must meet at least once a term; it can also have sub-committees to carry out some of the work. The Governing Body has three standing committees to monitor, support and challenge the school: these are Finance and Staffing, Curriculum and Health and Safety.
If you would like to find out more about the work of the Governing Body Mrs Tye in the school office will be only too pleased to help.

" My association with Sherburn School began over 10 years ago when I first came to work here. I became a governor because I am very proud of our school and am passionate about good education. I want to see each of our children reach their full potential. When I am not at school I indulge myself in my other passions of medieval history and languages."
