King James's School


Governors question, challenge, advise and engage in all aspects of running our school; checking that leaders' actions are being made in the best interests of children, young people and families. 

 Governing Body

Our Governing Body is made up of one Local Authority Governor, nine Member Governors, six Parent Governors, two Staff Governors and the Principal, Mr. Rimmer.


In addition to the elected Parent Governors, a number of the other Governors are also parents and others are parents of students who have recently left the school. This ensures that the people who are probably our biggest stakeholders are very well represented and have a say in how the school is run and managed.

Our Governors come from a wide variety of backgrounds and professions, which ensures that we have the necessary skills and experience to carry out our role professionally. 

We hold six full Governing Body meetings each year.Marsden Community Primary School - Governors



We also have four sub-committees;

  • Curriculum
  • Pastoral
  • Finance
  • Staffing

Each of these committees has a different Chair and meet four time each year

Joining our governing body

We are always interested in hearing from potential volunteers who feel they could make a difference to our young people's futures.
