Governors

The Governing Body works with the Headteacher and staff to make sure the school provides an excellent quality of education for all its pupils.

 

Governors are volunteers elected to the Governing Body for a fixed term bringing specialist skills and experience in order that its core strategic functions are met.

 

The Governing Body is part of the strategic leadership of the school.  Governors are not expected to make day-to-day decisions about how the school is run; that is the role of the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team. 

 

Governors have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

  1. “Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  2. Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.”

(Reference Department for Education – Governors’ Handbook)

 

This means that as school governors we will be involved in many aspects of running the school including how the budget should be spent, making sure the school building is welcoming, safe and fit for purpose, setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies and agreeing the curriculum.

 

The Governing Body meets in full once a term to conduct its business. Governors also meet in smaller focused committees to discuss key issues in the following areas:

 

  • Curriculum
  • Finance, Personnel and Premises
