Governor Information

The governors  are a dedicated group of volunteers who support and challenge the Headteacher and school leadership team in providing the best education for the children at Hindley Junior and Infant School. They bring a diverse range of perspectives to the table to enable robust decision-making. They expect each other to demonstrate a strong commitment to the role and all are determined to improve outcomes for the school community.

The Headteacher, Mr Wallace, is responsible for the day to day running of the school, but the governors help to set the strategic direction of the school and ensure finances are used effectively to provide a safe, inclusive and inspiring learning environment to allow the children and staff to flourish.

The governors endeavour for every child to be respectful, resilient, honest, determined, confident, cooperative and ambitious. We passionately believe that children should leave Hindley J&I well prepared, academically and socially, for their next stage in life.

The current composition of the Governing Body is as follows: two parent governors, five co-opted, one Local Authority governor, one staff governor and the Head Teacher. School Governors meet for one business meeting per year and three Full Governing Body Meetings, once every term. Extraordinary Governing Body Meetings also take place when needed. All of the members of the Governing body are split into two committees: the Asset Committee and the Standards & Curriculum Committee. Both committees meet separately once every half term.
