Governors

The Roles of the Governing Body

The Governing Body is made up of a group of 10 individuals with a wide variety of experiences and skills. The Governing Body includes the Head Teacher, other school staff, parents and local people.

The Governors are all volunteers who make their contribution to the school by carrying out their three key roles.

  1. Strategic
    We help to decide the school’s direction, helping to develop the School Development Plan, the school budget and school policies.
  2. A ‘Critical Friend’
    We provide the head teacher and staff with support, advice and information, drawing on our members’ knowledge and experience. We ask challenging questions and press for improvement, whilst promoting the interests of the school, its staff and pupils. We check that the school’s policies are being followed and reviewed. We look at results and ensure that the school is meeting the highest targets.
  3. Accountable
    We are jointly accountable to the community and parents for the performance of the school. We make parents aware of what we do and listen to parents’ views.

How We Fulfil Our Roles

We are organised in the same way as most companies.

We have a chair to keep the group on course, guide meetings and ensure everything is being done as and when required.

 

We meet twice a term as a full Governing Body. Copies of the minutes of the latest meeting will always be available from the school office for you to see what we have discussed and decided.

 

In between our Full Governing Body meetings smaller committee meetings take place to work on specific areas such as Resources and Pay.

 

Governors visit the school regularly and linked governors monitor a particular area or subject.
