Our main role is to support the Head Teacher and the staff. We help them to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence across the whole spectrum of school life.
The two key documents used for this are the School Development Plan and the Self Evaluation Form. The School Development plan sets out a three year strategic plan for the school, with targets that everyone works towards and the School Evaluation Form sets out how well the school is doing and where we aim to make improvements.
Our legal duties include:
setting strategic direction, policies and objectives
approving the school budget
reviewing progress against the school's budget and objectives
appointing, challenging and supporting the head teacher
The Governing Body meets at least once every (new) term. We sometimes set up committees to look at particular issues (such as pay, performance management, buildings development).
A small group (Head Teacher, Governor responsible for Finance and the School Finance Officer) meets every month to keep an eye on school finances between our termly governor meetings. All governors are informed about what happens at these monthly finance meetings. There are several categories of governor, appointed by different groups that have an interest in the school. These are Community governors, the Local Authority, Parents, and Staff. All governors have equal status.
Our Governing Body meetings are usually held in the evening. We attend training sessions and seminars to help us keep up to date with changes in schools and education in order for us to do our job effectively. We also go into school to meet with the Head Teacher, other members of staff and pupils to help us find out how the school is progressing towards its targets.
We are committed to providing an excellent environment for all pupils to enjoy during their time at our school.
