Governing Body

The Governing Body at Little Heath School involves itself fully in the life of the school, working hard in partnership with students, parents and staff to make educational standards as high as possible.  Their aim is to ensure that every child at the school fulfils their potential.

Governor Code of Conduct and Register of Business Interests

Every governor signs that they will comply with the code of conduct for governors.  Governors also register any business or financial interests on an annual basis.  For the academic year 2020/21 governors presented a nil return for any business or pecuniary interest, with governors who work in an organisation outside of the school declaring their post and the organisation they work for.
