Meet The Governors

 

The Governors are all volunteers who support and challenge the Headteacher in planning and providing the best education for the children within a happy learning environment, helping them to develop as confident and successful individuals. The day to day running of the school is the responsibility of the Headteacher. The Governors help to set the strategic direction of the school; ensure finances are used effectively to provide a positive and exciting learning environment and the resources necessary to deliver high standards of teaching and learning and to keep the children safe.

There are 8 Governors who sit on the Governing Board together with the Headteacher, Mrs Foulds. They represent the Parents, the local Community, the Local Authority, Staff and its Church Foundation. Each Governor serves for a term of 4 years. Training is provided for new and current Governors.

The Governing Board meets four times a year.  In addition there are 4 sub-committees:

Resources Management Committee (which includes Finance, Health and Safety, Personnel and Buildings)

Teaching and Learning Committee (which includes School Improvement, Special Educational Needs and Disability and Safeguarding)

Performance Management Committee

Disciplinary Committee

Most of the Governors’ work for the school takes place at Committee level with all decisions ratified by the full Governing Board.

In addition Governors take on further responsibilities for curriculum areas. They visit school on a regular basis to get a better understanding of the school, look at the children’s work, monitor behaviour, evaluate progress and ensure the school supports children of all abilities. They also take an active role in drawing up and monitoring the School Improvement Plan.

The Governing Board draws on a range of skills from its members to support the school. If you would like to know more about the role then do get in touch with any of the Governors or the Headteacher.

The Clerk to the Governors is Mrs Ann Duffy.
