Governors' Information & Duties

The main role of the governors is one of monitoring and evaluation to support the head and the staff. We help them to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence across the whole spectrum of school life.

We have a legal responsibility to:

  • Supporting the Headteacher in the day - to - day running of the school
  • They decide what is taught within the guidelines laid down by the Department for Education
  • Set standards of behaviour
  • Interview and select staff
  • Decide how the budget is spent
  • Produce an online School Profile reporting actvities, achievements and key issues.

The school governors meet together twice a term, the first half term focusing on Curriulum, Standards and Safeguarding, with the second half term focusing on Business, Finance and Personnel.

There are also other committees that meet from time to time to cover a specific task - the setting and review of the Head's performance agreement for example.

There are several categories of governor, appointed by different bodies that have an interest in the school. These are Parent, Staff, Community and Co-opted Governors. All governors have equal status, however they were appointed.

All the school governors are committed to maintaining the ethos and the high standards of achievement at the school. They are focussed not only on educational achievement but on the school's values, which are just as important.

Governors mostly carry out their duties during after school meetings and may attend training sessions and seminars to help them do their job effectively. They also go into school to meet with the Headteacher and other members of the management team in order to discuss the subjects they have responsibility for.
