Governors play an important role in the work of the school.
Below is a brief overview of our role and what we do.
Governors have the responsibility to:-
ensure that our school has clear aims and values and is being run
effectively and efficiently for the benefit of the pupils and the wider
focus on raising standards of achievement, establishing high
expectations and promoting effective teaching and learning so that
every pupil achieves his/her full potential
ensure that a balanced budget is set and that funding is directed to
recognise and celebrate the achievements of the school
What our Governors do…
The Full Governing Body (all Governors) meets once each term. There
is a formal agenda with our Clerk to the Governors taking notes which
become the official minutes of the meeting. The Headteacher provides
a full update of the previous few months in a Headteacher Report and
the Chair of Governors feeds back information about Governor
Committee meetings, Governors visits and Governor monitoring
There are two committees - standards and resource management. The standards committee meets 3 times per year and the resource management committee meets 6 times per year.
Governors make both formal and informal visits to the school on a
regular basis to ensure that they are knowledgeable and informed
about the school
Governors are always part of any recruitment process, including
observing applicants teaching and taking part in formal interviews
Governors attend regular training session including induction training
and safeguarding training
The Government expects Governors to:-
systematically monitor the school’s progress towards meeting
agreed development targets
be well informed and knowledgeable about the school
take and support decisions in the interests of pupils
