Skylark Federation Governing Board

The Skylark Federation consists of three primary schools: Barcombe CofE Primary School, Hamsey Community Primary School and Plumpton Primary School. There is one Governing Board over the Federation and it consists of 2 Parent Governors, 1 Staff Governor, plus our Executive Headteacher, 1 Local Authority Governor, 3 Foundation Governors and 8 Co-Opted Governors, plus the three Heads of School as Associate Governors.

The governors' aim is to enable Skylark Federation schools to provide the best possible education for the children in a happy, stimulating environment. They work to ensure that the experiences provided at the school enable every child to achieve their full potential, academically and socially.

The governors work closely with Mr James as well as school staff. As governors they are responsible for the strategic direction of the school; monitoring and evaluating the performance and effectiveness of the staff and ensuring that the children make appropriate progress in all areas of their education. They ensure that the budget is managed prudently, act as critical friends to the staff, monitor the school development plan and are involved in OFSTED school inspections.

The Governing Board may be contacted on: governor@skylarkfed.education

Thank you.
