Governors


What is the role of the Board of Governors?

The Department of Education states that a school Governing Body should:
(a) ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
(b) hold the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils,
and the performance management of staff
(c) oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure money is well spent.

The Governors act at a strategic level, seeking to ensure that the school meets its statutory
obligations and that it continues to strive towards higher standards in all areas.

For the Head Teacher we aim to be supportive at all times and questioning where necessary.

An important distinction is that the Governors are not involved in the day to day running of the
school, which is managed by the Head Teacher and the Senior Leadership Team.

Our Board of Governors has a total of 17 members and is structured to include four Parent Governors
(elected by other parents), the Head Teacher, one member of the teaching staff, one representative
from the Local Authority and a number of Co-opted Governors who are invited to join from the
locality. At present, eight of our governors are parents of current or past pupils and one is an
ex-pupil.

Together, our Governors bring a variety of skills and currently we draw on expertise in education,
finance, human resources, local government, pastoral care, marketing, research and strategy,
special educational needs, as well as teaching positions in other local schools.

All Governors serve a fixed term of four years, after which Parent Governors must stand for
re-election by school parents. Local Authority, Staff and Co-opted governors may be asked by the
Full Governing Body to continue to
serve on an annual basis after their four-year fixed term has ended.
