Hebden Bridge Infant Schools Federation

Stubbings Infant School and Central Street Infant and Nursery School are joined together in a Federation.  This means that they share school leadership and a single Governing Body.

Governors are responsible for the quality of education our children receive at both schools.  It is not our role to manage the schools.  Our role is to set the long term strategic direction and vision for the Federation, to appoint school leaders who will manage the schools and then to keep regular oversight of what is happening in the schools.  We do this by visiting school and having regular meetings with school leaders. 

Our Governors come from the local community, from parents and from staff.  We have a Code of Conduct that describes what we expect from individual Governors.  All Governing Bodies have an Instrument of Governance that sets out how the Governing Body is formed, We also have Terms of Reference that set out our approach to governing two schools.

The Governors meet at least 5 times each year to discuss the strategic direction of the school. There are 2 sub committees which conduct most of the business:

  • The Standards & Effectiveness Committee which looks at the standards, progress and care of the children. The Chair of this committee is Sally Taylder. 
  • The Resources Committee is responsible for budget, buildings and staffing issues. The Chair of this committee is Mia Simons.

These 2 committees report to all Governors at the Full Governors meetings

The Clerk to the Governing Body is Jane Milne.
