WHAT DO GOVERNORS DO?

  Governors work as a team with the Head Teacher and staff in the strategic planning and management of every school. Their responsibilities include agreeing the aims and policies of the school, discussion and approval of targets for improvement, appointment of senior staff, setting and monitoring the budget, monitoring the performance of the school and reporting to the parents and community on how the school is doing. Governors are the link between the school and the community and all those with an interest in the well-being and reputation of the school. Parent governors are vital members of our team, keeping the governing body aware of the views of parents.

 

HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE?

 We have at least 2 early evening meetings per term. Governors also spend time in school to get a feel for how the school is doing and attend school events. Governors also meet in 2 teams to share the workload and make use of their particular skills and expertise.

 

WHAT ARE WE WORKING ON AT THE MOMENT?

 We are working on regularly challenging and holding the school to account in terms of pupil progress and outcomes. We do regular lesson visits to find out about the new curriculum and also standards of behaviour in school. We have also attended Prevent training and are meeting with the school SENCo to discuss provision and outcomes for SEND pupils.

The key focus of all our work is to support and challenge the school on it's journey to 'good'
