Governors

Shirley Infant School and Shirley Junior School share a single Local Governing Body (LGB) that has responsibility for both schools.  Our aim is to improve outcomes for all children through the sharing of expertise, resources and facilities, as well as ensuring a seamless transition from Infant to Junior School.

The role of the Governing Body is to monitor, challenge and support the school at a strategic level. The full governing body usually meets once a term, focussing on a range of areas including standards, finance, safeguarding and strategic planning.  There are also two committees that meet every half-term.

Shirley Infant School and Shirley Junior School are part of the Hamwic Education Trust, a Multi Academy Trust.  The Governing Body operates under its Scheme of Delegation and LGB Terms of Reference. Both these documents can be seen here.

Both schools are also part of the  Jeffreys Education Partnership which brings together local schools who are part of Hamwic Educational Trust.
