What the Governors do
The Governors make collective decisions as part of the governing body whose primary function is to help raise the educational standards and performance of the school by supporting the work of the Head and the Staff. The governing body is answerable to parents and the wider community.
The Governors' role is strategic; they make important decisions on how the school is run. The day to day management and operation of the School is the responsibility of the Head.
Some of the Governors' responsibilities include:
Governors hold regular meetings for the full governing body as well as regular meetings of the Curriculum, Staffing, Finance and Premises sub-committees. Governors also support various initiatives in the School.
Minutes of meetings of the Governors are available on request from The Clerk
Becoming a Governor
Parent Governors are elected by the parents of pupils for a fixed term of 4 years. The School will advise parents when vacancies for Parent Governor become available as a result of a Governor standing down or completing their term. The eligibility and processes for nominations and election are communicated at the time.
LEA Governors are nominated by local councilor(s).
In addition to the Head teacher, Staff Governors are members of Staff who are elected by the staffing body (both teaching and non-teaching).
Co-opted Governors are appointed by the governing body to represent community interests or to bring specific skills to the governing body.
