Governors

 

Welcome to the Governors section of the website, which will explain the role of the governors, who they are and what they do?

 

The role of governors

 

The Governing Body oversees the running of the school in a non-executive capacity. Its role is to provide strategic direction for the work and improvement of the school in support of the headteacher and staff.

 

Tasks includes:

 

  • Discussing the vision and aims of the school and assisting in preparation of plans and policies
  • Acting as a critical friend to the school, asking questions, supporting the Headteacher, challenging proposals and monitoring progress on a wide range of issues
  • Being accountable and answerable to all stakeholders including parents, staff, pupils, the school community and both local and national government.

 

The full governor body is made up of parents, staff and members of the community.

 

To ensure effective and efficient management in the school, the governing body has sub-committees responsible for key areas of the management of the school.

 

These are:

 

  • Finance Committee (TOR)

     

    In additional to the Finance committee, there are other working groups which meet as required.

    These are:

     

    • Business as usual
    • Curriculum and Development
    • Child and Staff protection

     

    Other working groups are formed as necessary

     

    The committee and working party report in to the Full Governing Body which meets at least 6 times a year.  Minutes from these meetings can be requested from the school office.

     

    As at 13th October 2021, the governors and their responsibilities are as follows:
