The Governing Body of Busbridge CofE Junior School has a statutory responsibility for the strategic management and development of the school. Our statutory duty is also to promote high standards of educational attainment and ensure effective management of the school's resources.
The Governing Body is responsible for:
- ensuring that all relevant policies and procedures are in place and appropriate targets are set
- monitoring and reviewing the school budget 
- the appointment of staff including the headteacher
The Governing Body is not responsible for the day to day management and operation of the school which is the responsibility of the Headteacher, Richard Catchpole and his Leadership team. As a Governing Body we work closely with the Headteacher and his Leadership team to fulfil our statutory obligations.
If you would like to speak to our Chair of Governors, Ron Downhill, please contact him via his Chair email address, or contact him via the school office on 01483 417302 or email
