The Federation of St Mary's Hatfield

Broad Oak & Little Hallingbury C of E Primary Schools


Who are we & what do we do?


Every school has a Board of Governors constituted in accordance with its Instrument of Government.  There is a single Federation Governing Body which is responsible for both schools in the Federation. Being Church Schools, the Federation Board of Governors includes representatives of the Church at Parish and Diocesan level, as well as the Local Authority, Parents and Teachers.


The Board of Governors is responsible for the staffing, finance, curriculum, Admissions Policy, special needs and future planning of the school.  The Governors work very closely with the Executive Headteacher in making decisions about the life of the School, and the well-being of all children and staff within the Federation.

The current Governing body is made up as follows:
