Governing Body

Governors play a vital role in ensuring the best possible education for every child by creating robust accountability for school leaders (DfE 2015).

They have a strong focus on three core strategic functions

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

The full Governing Body meets every term. In addition, there are four committees, which meet in advance of the full governing body for more detailed discussions and to review policy documents. They are

  • Curriculum and Standards
  • Finance
  • Staffing and Pay
  • Premises

The Governing Body is comprised of 13 members and the composition is as follows

  • One Ex Officio (Headteacher)
  • One staff member elected by school staff
  • One appointed by the Local Authority
  • Four elected by parents of the school
  • Six Co-opted governors appointed by the Governing Body according to skills.
