Corby Glen Community Primary School


Our Governors


On behalf of our Governing Board I would like to welcome you to Corby Glen Community Primary School website. If you are a parent of one of our students or if you are considering sending your child to the school you may be interested to understand the purpose, makeup and ambition of the Board.

The Board has three strategic core functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.


As a Governing Board we direct, support and challenge the school leadership in order to:

  • ensure that the school provides outstanding all-round education so that every child is inspired to learn and reaches their potential - personally and academically
  • be the primary school of choice for all local families and a school that staff, governors, parents and children are proud to be a part.

Our aim is to ensure that all children are given the opportunity to reach their fullest potential, both academically and socially, and are part of an ambitious, caring, safe and successful learning community that prepares them for the future.
Our Governing Board has a maximum of 9 members  and consists of parents and volunteer members of the local community.  Currently the Board includes a retired RAF Group Captain, an Educational Psychologist, experienced trainer and clergyman, a senior HR practitioner and a Health and Safety professional. We use this broad range of skills and knowledge to help set the direction, provide practical support and hold the school to account. We welcome new members and if you feel you can offer relevant expertise and skills please get in touch with the clerk to the Board at

We are confident that, with a strong, ambitious and proactive Governing Board working closely and effectively with the dedicated, hardworking executive leadership we can ensure that the school continues to improve, and secures formal recognition for the quality experience being consistently provided to our students.
