The Headteacher manages the school and is also a school governor. The Headteacher is responsible to the Governing Body, which is in turn responsible to the Local Education Authority (Cheshire East).
It is the duty of the Governors to:
- oversee the general conduct of the school
- monitor the effective delivery of a sound education based on the National Curriculum
- in consultation with the Headteacher, manage the budget, appoint teaching and non-teaching staff and ensure a continuing high standard of provision with regard to buildings, grounds, resources and equipment
- ensure high standards of safety within the school and promote good relations with the local community
The Governors identify very closely with the school and work in close partnership with staff and parents. They voluntarily undertake this demanding role because of their interest and desire to contribute to the continuing success of Lindow School.

- Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare
