Governing Body Minutes


On 1st August 2012 King William Street CE Primary School became an academy; an academy is funded directly by the Department for Education, and not by the Local Authority (Swindon, in our case). As an academy we have more freedoms over the curriculum, purchasing and procurement, but have extra responsibilities in the management of the school, its assets and staff.For example the school became responsible for its own admissions policy and the Trustees and governors became the employer of the school’s staff. The Articles of Association and Funding Agreement can be found here, along with the register of interest, Management letter and financial statements.


Our Governing Body meets monthly whilst the Finance Committee meet bi monthly. On this page you will find downloads of the approved Governing Body minutes.

Governors News


I do hope you have had a great start to the new term. As governors we are looking forward to another productive year and are excited about the prospect of serving the school. We are also hoping to keep you better informed about what we do.

If you would like to know more about the current Board of Governors, please see the ‘meet the governors’ page on the school website. You can also see copies of the minutes from previous meetings to gain an idea of the work that is going on behind the scenes.

You may have heard or read in the news about the current funding crisis for schools across the country and we too are feeling these pressures in various ways. As governors are very grateful to the staff at King William Street who, despite these financial challenges, continue to make our school a stimulating and nurturing place for our children to grow and develop.

There are currently vacancies within the governing body, if you are interested in getting involved and joining us please get in touch. Alternatively, if you know someone who is interested in becoming a school governor, do pass on our details.

Have a great term everybody!
