Kimberley Governing Body

The Governing Body comprises of up to 8 community members appointed by the directors, up to 4 parent governors elected by parents, up to 2 staff governors elected by the staff, 1 ex-officio headteacher and a CEO.


The Governors has 3 key strategic functions:

  • Ensuring the clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and it's pupils, and the performance management of staff

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure it's money is well spent


The Board is not responsible for the day to day operation of the school – this is a matter for the headteacher who is accountable to the Governing Body.

Kimberley School is a member of the East Midlands Education Trust.  The Scheme of Delegation and the Supplementary Funding Agreement is published here.
