Ofsted Jan 2018: Governors are an enthusiastic and effective team. The governing body maintains a sound and careful oversight of all aspects of the school’s work. Governors share your vision for improvement and show the capacity and skills needed to support you in this. Governors ask challenging questions of senior leaders. For example, some keep a close eye on the school’s progress in diminishing the differences between the achievement of disadvantaged pupils and that of others. This is contributing to improved standards for this group.

SCHOOL GOVERNANCE

This page is designed to give you an overview of the school's governance arrangements and includes links to information on the Governing Board and details of all Governors. This page will be updated regularly, to summarise activities and developments; some elements will give a brief review of decisions, visits and other activities undertaken.

 

THE ROLE OF THE GOVERNING BOARD

The Governing Board is responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the Headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies.

 

The 3 key roles of a Governing Board are:

 

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • To hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent.

 

This means governors get involved in:

 

  • deciding how the budget should be spent and ensuring good value for money;
  • making sure the curriculum provides for and stretches all pupils;
  • making sure the school buildings are welcoming, safe and well used;
  • setting and monitoring the school's values, aims and policies;
  • appointing staff and making sure the right development and reward arrangements are in place.

BECOMING A GOVERNOR

Governors take a four-year term. The Government has asked Governing Boards to focus on ensuring they recruit people with the skills that the Governing Board requires.

 

The only type of Governor who is elected rather than appointed are the Parent Governors. When a current Parent Governor's term is coming to an end, we will circulate information to all parents regarding the election process. We will also state what skills we are looking for.

 

However, regardless of specialist skills any eligible parent can still apply if they would like to.
