At Buckton Vale Primary School we have a Local Governing Board (LGB) who work closely with the Acting Headteacher along with other Senior Leaders at the School.

Buckton Vale is a proud part of Victorious Academies Trust.  You can find out more about the Trust on their website click here. The Trust has delegated the role of making many key decisions that affect the education and wellbeing of our pupils to the LGB.

The Governors are involved in:

  • Setting the Academy’s vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Principal to account for the educational performance of the Academy and its pupils; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the Academy and making sure money is well spent.

The LGB is vital to the successful running of the School. Governors from our local community bring a wide range of skills and experience to the LGB. Parent Governors are elected by the parents of pupils at our School and have an important role in LGB decision making.

You can find more details about our Governor’s, Term of Office, Register of Interests and Attendance on our Trust website click here.

You can contact the Acting Chair of Governors, Ruth Dolan through the School office on 01457 833 102 or by admin@bucktonvale.tameside.sch.uk

If you would like to help the School and share your expertise by becoming a Governor, please contact the Acting Headteacher via the School office who can tell you more about what the roles involves.
