Together we achieve our best


At Peel Hall we have the following committees:

  • Full Governing Body - Oversees the development of the whole school and ensures the health and safety of all students, members of staff and visitors to school.
  • Finance, pay and staffing - Ensures that ll monies are accounted for and spent according to Local Authority guidelines
  • HT Performance Management - This committee manages the Headteacher's performance and effectiveness

Sheila Hamnett is the chairperson of all committees.

There are also  separate disciplinary and appeals committees which are convened if they are required.

The different categories of Governors on our Governing body are:

  • Parent governors who have a child in school at the time of their election, and are elected by the parents with children at the school
  • Staff governors who are members of staff at the school and are elected by their colleagues
  • Co-opted governors are appointed on to the governing body by the other members because they come from a specialist group, such as the business community or because they possess a particular skill which can contribute to the effective governance and success of the school
  • Local authority (LA) governors who are nominated by the local councillor and appointed by the governing body
  • The Headteacher (HT) is also a member of the governing body by right of the position they hold in school
  • Associate members are not actually governors but can be appointed to serve on committees and attend meetings of the full governing body. they do not have the right to vote at meetings of the full governing body but may be given voting rights on the committees that they are a member of, but these rights can only be given by the governing body.

Register of Personal, pecuniary or business interests

All the governors and associate members of Peel Hall Primary School have signed the Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests.

This is a declaration of any personal or business interest they or any relative or person closely connected with them, have with businesses or other organisations that may have dealings with the school. This could for example include owning or having a relative work for a business that had dealings with school; having a relative working in or for school or being a governor of another school.

If any interest a governor has could be seen to cause a conflict of interest, they would be asked to withdraw from any decision making concerned. This is to ensure that our governors can always be seen to be putting the interest of the school first.

More information about the requirements to complete and sign the Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests can be found on the Salford City Council's Governor Services web pages here. You will also find the links to all the other local authority’s (LA) governing bodies’ personal, pecuniary or business interests’ registers here.
