Governors

Welcome to the Governors' Page

The Governing Body are a group of volunteers who work alongside the Head Teacher to support in the strategic leadership of the school. Members are voted onto the Governing Body by their representative groups. Each Governor can then stay a member for four years. Much of the work of the Governing Body is around the strategic leadership of the school which means we support the school leadership team in making both good financial decisions and also making sure that decisions about children's education are good. We track the progress of the school which means we look at how well our children are performing in their education. We also look at how well our teachers are teaching and support school leaders in helping them to get better.

Much of our work is divided across three committees which meet once every term. Each Governor is expected to visit the school once a term for monitoring.

The function and remit of the committees are:

 

Finance and Resources: A committee operating under the delegation of the Full Governing Body to view progress on premises, School personnel and finances, including the use of Pupil and Sports Premium monies. Reports back to the Full Governing Body.

 

Curriculum: A committee operating under the delegation of the Full Governing Body that deals with all Curriculum matters, including pupil development monitoring and policy ratification. Reports back to the Full Governing Body

 

Pay and Performance: A committee operating under the delegation of the Full Governing Body that deals with all staff pay matters (with the exception of the head teacher) and implements pay policy with consideration to staff performance.

 

Pay Appeals: A committee operating under the delegation of the Full Governing Body to consider any appeals against decisions of the Pay Committee.
