Becket Primary School Governing Body

The school is supported by a dedicated and enthusiastic group of governors who work in close partnership with the Headteacher, staff and children to help ensure the best outcome for our children.

Each Governor is elected for a period of 4 years and any parent/carer of pupils registered at the school is eligible to stand for election when a vacancy occurs.

The Governing Body meets each half term to discuss items raised by its members.

We are always interested in hearing from parents, staff or individuals in the local community with any suggestions and can be contacted in a number of ways:-

  • In person in the school playground if you see one of our governors
  • Leave a message in the school office or phone the school office on 01332 347595
  • Or by email to admin@becket.derby.sch.uk

The Full Governing Body and its three committees are together accountable for the three core functions of setting the vision, holding the headteacher to account for the school’s educational performance and ensuring money is well spent.

Our current Governors are :-
