> About Us > Governors

Castlefields Primary School is part of Trust.Ed CSAT Alliance. The Trust website publishes the annual accounts.


Castlefields School is required to have 11 Governors to make up its Local Governing Body, this comprises: 3 Parent Governors; 2 Governors appointed by Bridgnorth Area Schools Trust; 4 Co-opted Governors and 2 members of school staff.

The Parent Governors are elected by the parents of school pupils; Co-opted Governors are elected directly by the Governing Body, and the Trust Governors are appointed by Bridgnorth Area Schools Trust (BAST).  Co-opted and Trust appointed Governors do not have to have any children in the school, although in our school a number of these Governors are also parents.


Three meetings are held every term: A Full Governors Meeting; a curriculum, standards and communications committee meeting and a finance and health and safety committee meeting.  Minutes are taken during each of these meetings; these are public documents and are available on request.

Governors are elected for terms of 4 years, after this they may be re-elected.
