Governance

Our Governors work in partnership with the Executive Head Teacher, to achieve the common goal that “everybody will achieve their best.”

Governors always act as a collective body and always at a strategic level, and together with the Senior Leadership Team they play a vital role in the schools leadership.

Our Governing Body:

  • sets the strategic direction of the school
  • agrees the targets and principles for school improvement
  • are responsible for the financial management of the school
  • monitor and evaluate the schools work against the school improvement plan
  • ensure there is accountability on every decision that affects the schools performance.

The Governing Body meet twice each half term and these meetings alternate between a ‘standards’ focus and a ‘resources’ focus. In addition the governing body has a  committees for staff pay decisions and a panel for the head teacher’s performance management. Committees for appeals, complaints and disciplinary matters are constituted as required. The governing body works in partnership with the governing body of Barncroft Primary School, to ensure such committees are quorate and impartial.

The Governors, Head Teacher and Staff work together to create an environment in which the children are happy and want to learn.

Our Governors are DBS checked and are regularly seen supporting both day to day pupil learning and special events.  However, whilst we encourage the visibility of our Governors, the day to day leadership and management of the school is delegated to the Head Teacher and Leadership Team.  Governors focus is on matters related to strategy and school effectiveness.

If you wish to contact any of the Governors please telephone the school and you will be put in touch with them.
