Local Governing Body
Welcome to our Governors’ section
The role of the Local Governing Body is to provide focused governance for the school at a local level. We monitor the school’s key performance indicators and act as a critical friend to the Head Teacher, providing challenge where appropriate. We also play a part in representing the views of all the school stakeholders: children, staff and parents; as well as offering assistance to the Academy Trustees in the fulfillment of their duties.
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

My daughter attends Kemble Primary School and we live in Siddington, so I am delighted to be a parent governor for both schools. I worked in the finance sector for 30 years.
Mr Martin Kingston - Co-opted Governor
I am delighted to be part of the Kemble School Community. I have lived in Kemble for ten years and am a retired town and country planning lawyer.
