Governors

 

Our Governing Board consists of elected parents, members of the local community, Local Authority representatives and school staff. The Governing Board has the responsibility of monitoring all aspects of school standards. This is a strategic role and we operate and make decisions as a group, no one governor has the power to make decisions.

 

What is the Governing Board responsible for?

  • In state schools the Governing Board has responsibility for raising school standards through three core strategic functions of:

a. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

b. Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and

c. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

 

What is the Headteacher responsible for?

  • Day-to-day management of the school. The role of the Governing Board is to provide strategic management, and to act as a "critical friend", supporting the work of the Headteacher and other staff.

 

How does the Governing Body work?

  • We have a committee structure to undertake our monitoring and evaluation roles. Membership and terms of reference of committees are determined annually in the Autumn term and each committee meets at least once per term. We have three main committees:
    • Finance and Buildings Committee, which includes Health and Safety matters,
    • Curriculum Committee
    • Personnel and Pay Review Committee
  • The full Governing Board also meets once each term. The agenda usually includes the Headteacher’s Report to Governors, committees reports, presentation of recommendations when approval by the full Governing Body is required, new business to consider e.g. advice from the Local Authority for a school policy and specific governor reports.

 

What is expected of an individual governor?

The role of governor is largely a thinking and questioning role, not a doing role. In order to perform this role well, a governor is expected to:

  • get to know the school, including by visiting the school occasionally during school hours, and gain a good understanding of the school’s strengths and weaknesses;
  • attend induction training and regular relevant training and development events;
  • attend meetings (full governing body meetings and committee meetings) and read all the papers before the meeting;
  • act in the best interest of all the pupils of the school; and
  • behave in a professional manner, as set down in the governing body’s code of conduct, including acting in strict confidence.
