The governing body of Pen Pych C.P.S is made up of parents, teachers at the school, local council representatives, community representatives and co-opted members from the local community able to bring their particular specialist qualities to the governing body.
The governing body has legal duties, powers and responsibilities and are appointed to help decide what is taught within the school, decide how the school budget is spent, interview and select staff and set codes of behaviour and discipline. They normally meet at least once a term.
