Governors

 

Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about the school governors and the work that we do. You can also view the governors minutes (at the foot of the page). We also have copies of the minutes in our school reception area.

Our main role is to support the Headteacher and the staff; the phrase often used to describe this role is ‘a critical friend’. We help to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence across the whole spectrum of school life. The two key documents used for this are the School Development Plan (SDP) and the Self Evaluation Form (SEF). The SDP sets out a three year strategic plan for the school with targets that everyone works towards, and the SEF sets out how well the school is doing and where we aim to make improvements.

Our legal duties include:-

  • setting strategic direction, policies and objectives
  • approving the school budget
  • reviewing progress against the school's budget and objectives
  • appointing, challenging and supporting the Headteacher 

Register of Business Interests

The Governing Body have a legal duty to act only in the interests of the school. Where a situation arises in which we cannot do this due to a personal interest we may have, steps should be taken to identify, prevent and record the conflict. This ensures that the governing body are acting only in the best interest of the school. All governors complete a declaration on an annual basis. We are asked if we have connections/membership/shares in companies etc which may have a direct business interest in the school

 

Other Important Duties

The whole Governing Body meets at least once every term. We have also set up working groups to look at particular issues such as pay, performance management, buildings development etc. A small group; Headteacher, System Manager & the governor responsible for Finance also meet termly to keep an eye on school finances. All governors are informed about what happens at these finance meetings.

Could You Become a School Governor?

Being a school governor is a great way to contribute to school while learning new skills. All types of people can become school governors, no qualifications are needed, but you must be over 18 years of age when you are elected. Enthusiasm, commitment and an interest in education are the most important qualities and you don't need to have a child at school.
