Our Purpose

All Local Authority maintained schools have to legally have in place a board of governors.  These volunteers are responsible for the strategic leadership of the school and together with the headteacher and members of staff ensure that schools are safe and effective in their duty to deliver education to the children who attend.

The Governors Core Functions are:         

a) Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

b) Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

c) Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

Darley & Summerbridge Community Primary Schools Governing body is made up of members of the local community from in  and around the villages of Darley & Summerbridge.  The Governing Bodies of both schools were dissolved in April 2017 and        re-constituted at the same time to form one federated governing body.  The Governors were appointed by following the  guidance laid out by the Local Authority. Our Governing Body is made up of one headteacher, one Local Authority appointed  governor, 1 staff governor, 2 parent governors and 5 co-opted governors.  The Governors meet every half term during which all  aspects of school improvement are discussed and as such we no longer have separate committees.  For further information  about individual governors please see below.


Welcome from the Chair of Governors

Darley School has an outstanding capacity to offer children of all abilities and cultures a truly rounded and fulfilling education.

Our culture of excitement, friendship, happiness, co-operation and determination are embedded within the learning environment and culture of the school. We reward demonstration of these values and work effortlessly with parents and pupils to bring these values to the fore in all our learners.

Please do not hesitate to contact either myself or any member of the staff or governing body for further information regarding Darley Primary School.
