The role of the Governors

A governing body’s overriding responsibility is to work in partnership with the head teacher to promote continuous improvement in the performance of the school. This involves the development of a development plan, the setting of challenging but achievable targets and the interpretation of information to assess progress and determine appropriate action.

Aligned to its improvement role, the governing body is there to be a critical friend who can provide the right balance between supporting and challenging the performance of the school.

How do we do this?

Self Evaluation, we look at what we do and what we can do to improve.

Agree the School Development Plan and monitor its implementation.

Ensure that the school meets it statutory and professional responsibilities as an employer and as a provider of services to children.

Plan how the school budget is to be used and monitor spending with compliance to the budget agreed at the start of the year.

Authorise the policies and strategies required to provide the best available education to the children.

Ensure the children have a safe, supportive environment.

Review how the school meets its statutory responsibilities to provide for the needs of every individual child.

Agree the appropriate staff structure for the school and ensure that staff is managed in a way that holds them to account for their performance and develops their potential for the future.

Confirm that the voice of the children, parents and others with a legitimate interest in the school area heard and taken into account.

Resolve any serious conflict within the school or between the school and parents.

Appoint and support the staff of the school.

How do we work?

 We meet as a full Governing Body every half term. Extraordinary meetings are arranged if circumstances warrant such action.

Every year we elect a Chair and a Vic-Chair from amongst the existing members of the Governing Body (employees at the school cannot be elected to these positions).

The Governing Body also has a clerk who arranges the meetings, circulates the agenda and papers, takes minutes and circulates information to Governors from the Local Authority.

In order to delegate and share the responsibilities of the Governing Body more effectively, we have sub committees for Resources – which includes finance, premises, health & safety and staffing and for School Improvement. These committees report back to the Governing Body. There is also a named governor for Child Protection, Safeguarding and SEND.
