Purford Green School

Governors and Trust Board

Purford Green Primary is part of the Passmores Cooperative Learning Community (PCLC). Our Local Governing Body has representatives of parents, school staff, Passmores Academy and the local community and is accountable to PCLC for standards of progress and achievement of our pupils.

Along with the other constituent academies, we are represented on the PCLC Trustee Board, which is ultimately responsible to the Department for Education.

PCLC Members are the final layer of the governance structure and have a role similar to shareholders in a company.
