While the Headteacher has overall responsibility for the management and running of the school on a day-to-day basis, the governors (who include the Head Teacher) are responsible for matters of policy. We meet to discuss areas such as finance, personnel, teaching and learning, premises and communications.
The Governing Board of Ashmount Primary School was reconstituted in line with new legislation in March 2015. The Governing Board is now made up of 11 governors: 1 Head Teacher; 1 other staff governor elected by the staff ; 1 governor nominated by the Local Authority; 4 parent governors elected by the parents, and 4 governors co-opted to the Board on the basis of their skills, knowledge and experience.
Our chair of Governors is Dean James Robbins. Our Vice Chair is Lucy Kilkenny.

The reconstituted Governing Board voted to invite applications from the staff and parent bodies for associate membership of the Board’s sub-committees. Associate Members have voting rights on the committees to which they are attached but not at FGB Meetings. Their attendance at FGB is, therefore, optional. We have now appointed six associate members as follows:
Catherine Burkin – 09/07/2017 to 08/07/2019 (Special Educational Needs and Disability)
Ian Goodfellow – 09/07/2017 to 08/07/2019
Kate Peers – 09/07/2017 to 08/07/2019
Eleanor Haworth – 09/07/2017 to 08/07/2019
Sharon Turney – 18/03/2017 to 17/03/2019
