Governors

All primary, secondary and special schools are accountable to their governing bodies or Boards who should, in partnership with the school leadership, determine and articulate a clear vision of where they want the school to be in three to five years' time.  It should promote high standards of educational achievement for the school by monitoring the work it undertakes, and report to interested parties and the wider community via, for example, the school web page.  Governors take their duties and being appointed to public office very seriously and every September, at the first meeting of the Board, review and agree their 'Code of Conduct, which includes 'The Seven Principles of Public Life' (see link below).   Details of our Governing Board appear below.  

 

LANGTREE COMMUNITY SCHOOL  GOVERNING BODY

Governors must act, and be seen to act, impartially.  All members of the governing body are required to complete a Declaration of Business Interests at the first meeting of the academic year as, where a governor has any interest in a matter to be discussed at a governors’ meeting, either pecuniary or non-pecuniary, the governor must declare their interest and withdraw from that part of the meeting.

Governors have read and adhere to the joint LDP Babcock/Devon County Council Governor Code of Conduct which incorporates ‘The Seven Principles of Public Life’.
