The Governing Body

Every school has a governing body to represent the public in the running of schools.

School governors work with the staff and the Local Education Authority to help secure the best possible education for the children in the school. They have important responsibilities like managing the school budget, overseeing the curriculum and appointing staff.

What do school governors do?

School governors are a team of people who work closely with the head teacher to make key decisions vital to the successful running of the school. The governing body meet regularly throughout the year and make decisions that directly affect the education and well-being of the children. They play an important role in improving standards throughout the school and agree the school's budget, policies and procedures.

Cycle of Meetings 

Each term (Autumn, Spring, Term) Governors have three formal meetings. All members of the Governing body attend all committee meetings.

  • Teaching and Learning 
  • Resources 
  • Full Governing. Body 

At the 'Teaching and Learning' and 'Resources' committee meeting, the evening is always spent focusing on one area of school development. Throughout the year a range of staff will come to meetings and present and Governors are given the opportunity to look through books, resources, ask a range of questions and develop their own knowledge.

Full Governing Body meetings are always based around the Headteacher report, where key information is shared with the Governing Body.   

In all meetings Governors are proactive in providing support but also a level of challenge, for the whole school developments being made and the progress the school is making against key standards and specific development areas.
