Governors

Who are the Governing Body

 

The Governing Body consists of a group of people who can offer the school different areas of expertise. They ensure the school provides a good all-round education for all the children.  All governors are unpaid voluntary members taken from the local community. The role of the Governing Body is to work with the school to raise standards. This is done by agreeing school aims and values, reviewing policies and gathering evidence to ensure the strategy is being followed and hold the school management to account.

The Governing body meets six times each year and appoints working parties who follow up specific areas of school management and reports to the Governing Body.

There is also a  Finance Committee which meets before each Full Governing Body meeting to scrutinise budget reports and discuss long-term financial plans for the school

All non-staff Governors have a link class at the school.  Regular visits are made to these link classes to check on the progress and implementation of the School Improvement Plan, as well as their understanding of school life.  The respective Governor then reports back to the Full Governing Body.  It is intended that the link Governor stays with the respective class throughout the school life to enable continuity and a better understanding of the attributes of each class.

Please remember if you have a concern about your child’s time at school then the correct route to express these concerns is with the class teacher or the head. Usually any problems are resolved without the involvement of the Governing Body.
