Governor Roles

Who are the school governors and what do we do?

The school’s governors are a group of 12 volunteers including parents, staff and members of the local community. We meet once or twice a term and work closely with the Headteacher to support the school. We monitor the school’s performance and are also involved in setting targets to improve standards and for financial planning.

Within the governing body we have four committees which again meet each term and concentrate their discussions around a particular area of responsibility. These committees are Curriculum, Finance, Personnel and Premises/Health & Safety.

Curriculum Committee

The curriculum committee ensures that all children have access to the national curriculum and that high academic standards are maintained. To do this we discuss the school’s curriculum policies, monitor the quality of teaching and study the annual attainment test results. We also check that pupils with additional needs are provided for and treated fairly.

Premises Committee

The premises committee ensures that all the children have a suitable and safe school environment. To do this we check that the buildings are fit for purpose and well maintained. We carry out risk assessments where appropriate and address any health and safety concerns that arise.

Personnel Committee

The personnel committee oversees the appointment of all staff in the school, their professional development and their well-being. To do this we discuss the school’s policies related to personnel including behaviour and attendance policies, equal opportunities policies relating to staff and pupils, anti-bullying and child safeguarding policies.

Finance Committee

The Finance Committee oversees the financial management of the school and makes sure that it operates within budget and makes the most effective use of the funds it receives from the County Council.  The Finance Committee helps the Head Teacher to set a 3 year plan of projected income and expenditure and also advises on policies relating to financial matters such as the School’s Lettings Policy.
