The Governing Body at Nonsuch Primary School consists of members of the local and school community. It works closely with Mr Green and the Senior Leadership Team to oversee the strategic direction of the school. It does this by offering support, constructive advice, a sounding board for ideas, and help where needed. It challenges, asks questions and seeks information to ensure that the best interests of the children at Nonsuch Primary are maintained.

All of the governors listed below act on a voluntary basis. Some are appointed by the Local Authority (LA), some elected by parents, some by teachers/staff and some are co-opted by the governors from the local community.

 The Department for Education has stated that governors hold an important public office and their identity should be known to their school and wider communities. In the interests of transparency, governing bodies should publish on their website information about their members, committee structure and remit of committees. All information needs to be published in a readily accessible form. Readily accessible means that the information should be on a webpage without the need to download or open a separate document. This can be found below.

 This school uses the Model of Governance of a Full Governing Body (FGB) meeting each month for ten months of the year. When necessary, working groups can be established - for example, budget planning - and these working groups report back to the FGB for final agreement.
