Our School: Governors

Chair of Governors - Ms Yvette Butterfield

On behalf of the governing body, welcome to Richard Lander School. 

Richard Lander School Governing Body

The Governing Body has three core functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its students and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

Within our governing body we have 4 committees:

  • Personnel
  • Finance and General Purpose 
  • Students and Curriculum
  • Policy

These committees report back to the main governing body at the end of each term.

Further guidance on being a governor is available on the Cornwall Council website at http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/education-and-learning/schools-and-colleges/governors/

If you would like to know our Governors attendance data please contact Mrs V Sleeman on VSleeman@richardlander.cornwall.sch.uk. If you would like to contact a governor please do so through the main school number or Mrs Sleeman.

Minutes of the meetings are available upon request by contacting the school on 01872 273750
