The responsibilities of the Hotwells Primary School Governing Body are determined by the Cathedral Schools Trust Scheme of Delegation. The CST Governance arrangements can be found here.
CST is a family of three secondaries and six primaries who have a governance structure of Members, Trustees and Local Governing Bodies with responsibilities specified in the Scheme of Delegation. The names of Members, Trustees, the Funding Agreement, Articles of Association and Scheme of Delegation are available here.
The Governors at Hotwells work with Cathedral School Trust Trustees to provide strategic leadership and accountability in the school. They devolve day to day operational decisions to the Headteacher and school Senior Leadership Team but strategically they work with school staff to make decisions that ensure all pupils achieve their best.
We are fortunate enough to have a skilled and committed Local Governing Body at Hotwells who are keen to being involved in the continued improvement of the school. If you would like to find out more about the role of the Local Governing Body, please contact the school office or get in touch with Chris Bond, our Chair of Governors.
If you wish to contact the Chair of Governors, you can write to him at Hotwells Primary School, Hope Chapel Hill, Hotwells, Bristol, BS8 4ND or email via the school office at firstname.lastname@example.org
Further information on the roles of governors can be found on the Ofsted and National Governors Association websites.
