Sherburn Hungate Primary School


The Sherburn Hungate Community Primary School Governing Body is made up of 11 governors.


All governors, with the exception of the headteacher, are appointed for a four year term. The Clerk to the Governing Body, Helen Groot, supports the governors in an administrative and advisory capacity. When parent governor vacancies arise, details on the nomination process are sent to all parents in the school.


The governing body is responsible for the conduct of our school, and must promote high standards of educational achievement at the school. It is the school’s accountable body and as such: 


  • provides a strategic view of the school by establishing a vision and setting the purpose and aims of the school within an agreed policy framework. It appoints and performance manages the headteacher, agreeing the school improvement strategy which includes setting statutory targets with supporting budgets and staffing structures;  
  • monitors and evaluates the work of the school by reviewing the performance of the headteacher, the effectiveness of the policy framework, progress towards targets, and the effectiveness of the school improvement strategy;   
  • signs off the self evaluation process and responds to school improvement service and Ofsted reports as necessary. In addition it holds the headteacher to account for the performance of the school and ensures that parents are involved, consulted and informed as appropriate, with information to the community being made available as required.  
  • is responsible for financial probity.

Headteacher (Ex-Officio)

Mr Martyn Broom

I am the proud headteacher of Sherburn Hungate Primary School.  I am delighted to lead such a talented staff team who work incredibly hard to improve outcomes for all children.  Sherburn is my second headteacher post and I'm really looking forward to seeing the school expand over the next two years.  The exciting part is staff recruitment and team development and there's lots happening with the curriculum at the moment that's pulling our STARMAT together in many positive ways.

Personally, I'm an avid Leeds United supporter and enjoy going to games with my two sons, Owen & Joe.  We live in Snaith in East Yorkshire and we love going on holidays; doesn't everyone?

I currently run Buddies before-and-after school club at Sherburn Hungate school. Prior to this I was a childminder and prior to that a health visitor and a children's nurse. So my expertise is child health and development and safeguarding. I became a governor in 2018 and enjoy this role, it is a great insight into school life. Outside of work and school my time is spent with family and friends.
