Our Governors

Role of Governors at our school.

1. They are responsible, along with the Headteacher for the strategic direction of the school.
2. The governing body is accountable for the performance of the school to parents and the wider community.
3. They act as a ‘critical friend’ using their expertise to challenge, advise and support the school to improve.

The Governing Body is made up of representatives from staff, parents and the community.

Our Parent and Staff Governors are elected. The Headteacher has a standing post; Co-opted Governors are nominated and approved by the Governing Body for a term which lasts 4 years at a time.

If you are interested in becoming a Parent Governor please let us know and we will inform you when vacancies arise.

Contacting Governors.

Governors can be contacted via the school office.

Place any communication in an envelope marked Governors and we will ensure it is passed to the Chair of Governors.

Committees.

The work of the Governing Body is carried out through committee groups.

These are; Learning and Development Committee, Premises Committee and Finance and Personnel Committee. To maximise the opportunity to attend committee meetings all governors are invited to these meetings held termly.

The Governing Body also fulfil their statutory duties through the Pay Committee, Pay Appeals Committee and Complaints Committee (formed as needed.)

Pay Appeals Committee:

Register of Interests.

All members of the Governing Body - and staff, where appropriate - are required to complete an annual declaration of their financial and pecuniary interests and any relationships between Governors and members of the school staff. This declaration must also include business interests of relatives, such as parents, spouses, co-habitees or business partners, where influence could be exerted by that person over a Governor or member of staff or where the Governor or staff member could benefit directly or indirectly from a transaction with the school.

All Governors have signed a Register of Interests to indicate whether they have a potential conflict of interest or not.
