Governors’ Information & Duties
We are extremely proud that Rudston has for many years been able to offer continuity of provision throughout the vital stages in your children’s development from birth to age eleven.
Rudston Primary School has an excellent and well deserved reputation not only for academic results but also for its teaching in the arts and sport.
We are committed as well as to working closely across the whole school community.
We believe that a School’s role is not just to achieve examination success but to nurture the whole child in an atmosphere of creativity, fun, support and challenge. This is not a matter of either aiming for good academic results or for exciting education: the two go hand in hand.
We trust that you will join us as we move forward and continually improve the teaching and learning in Rudston Primary School.

The governing body of a school is responsible for ensuring that it is run to promote pupil achievement. Its duties include:
- setting strategic direction, policies and objectives
- approving the school budget
- reviewing progress against the school’s budget and objectives
- appointing, challenging and supporting the headteacher
The governing body is made up of:
- parent governors (elected by parents)
- staff representatives (elected by school staff)
- local authority governors (appointed by the local authority)
- community governors (members of the local community appointed by the governing body)
