Our Governors

Our Team of Governors

Welcome to our Governors' page. The aim of this page is to inform parents of the structure and remit of William Levick's Governing Body and how the Governing Body functions for the benefit of the School.

The School Governing Body includes representatives from parents, staff, members of the local community and Derbyshire County Council Education Authority. The Governing Body plays a largely strategic role together with the Senior Leadership Team of the School and is keen to see educational standards continually improving in the School, in line with government standards and targets. In addition, the Governors scrutinise the work of the School, particularly the standards of achievement, to ensure the School is effectively educating the pupils in line with Governor approved School policies and preparing them for their futures.

Governance of the School is conducted with a Full Governing Body, including all Governor representatives. The Full Governing Body is supported by two Sub-Committees, which include 'Resources' and 'Curriculum & Standards'. The Full Governing Body and Committees oversee the effective leadership and management of the School.
