Governors

Welcome to the Governors' page of the website.

                                                                                                                                          

The Governing Body consists of local volunteers who have an active interest in the school.

 

As Governors we work as a team to support, challenge and provide a strategic leadership to our school. Governors play a vital role in moving the school forward and ensuring every child gets the best possible education.

 

We have a strong focus on three core 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.

We do this through Governing Body meetings six times a year,  and regular visits into school to look at different aspects of the curriculum. We also offer support for school events.

 

Each Governor links in with a Class Teacher in a “buddy” system to gain a good understanding of that year group.  In addition to this we have Governors with specific lead areas, looking at topics such as Safeguarding, SEN, finance and data.

 

Our Governing body is made up of 12 Governors in the following areas:

 

  • Headteacher
  • Ex Officio
  • 6 Foundation Governors - elected by the Church Foundation Trust & Trustees
  • 1 Staff Governors  - elected by school staff 
  • 2 Parent Governors -elected by parents
  • 1 Local Authority Governor -nominated by the Local Authority
  • Co-opted Governors -invited by the Governing Body as and when required

 

For more details of who our Governors are and their roles, please see the table below and the who’s who section of this website.

 

We hope that you have found this page helpful and informative. If you have any questions or would like to contact the Governing Body please do so via the school office.

Structure

 

In the past we had several committees, together with a full governing body and found that more time was spent talking about things, then repeating them, than actually doing things.  So we took the collective decision to use alternating Full Governor Meetings (FGM) to look at Teaching and Learning and Finance as main items.

 

Where it was found we needed to have smaller working parties to look at Teaching and Learning or Finance, then these would be set up under the responsibilities granted to those committees, but done so on an as-and-when basis.

 

We have also needed to be flexible over the previous 18+ months and moved to virtual meetings together with emailed decisions to remain safe.
