Our Governors

Governors are people who have an interest in the role of schools in society and wish to make a positive contribution to their communities. They will have enquiring minds and contribute to the effective running of the school and the educational achievements of its pupils. A governing body's overriding responsibility is to work in partnership with the head teacher to promote continuous improvement in the performance of the school. This involves the establishment of a development plan, the setting of challenging but achievable targets and the interpretation of information to assess progress and determine appropriate action. Typically, a governor's duties will average at around 6 hours of time each month. Aligned to its improvement role, the governing body is there to be a 'critical friend' who can provide the right balance between supporting and challenging the performance of both the head teacher and the school.

Training and Support

The LA values the voluntary contribution of its governors and in return aims to provide a high-quality training and support service. Governors are able to access this support in a variety of ways including training courses and a designated helpline. A regular newsletter is sent to all school governors in the area to keep them informed of developments in education policy and current best practices. The governors’ responsibilities affect most aspects of the school. Together with the Head Teacher and staff they set the vision and establish the right culture to drive forward improvement to ensure the best life chances are secured for every child.

Governors aim to keep in touch with he local community and help guide the school to meet the community’s educational needs.

Parent and teacher Governors are elected for a period of four years.

The Governing Body as a whole meet at least once per month. All of our meetings are of the full board as opposed to in committees. there are also some small working groups and each governor has at least one area where they are the strategic link to school. The minutes of the Governing Body are available for inspection at the school.

Thank you for voting in our recent Parent Governor Election - Pete Carr has been successfully appointed as a Parent Governor.

From our OFSTED report in January 2013:

Governance has improved considerably since the previous inspection. Governors have a full understanding of data and how it relates to pupils’ progress. They keep a close eye on the impact of any spending, including the pupil premium funding. Governors canvassed staff opinion as part of their self-evaluation. They responded positively to the criticism that they seemed a bit remote and have worked on raising their profile in the school. Consequently, governors go into lessons, look at teachers’ planning and accompany staff on ‘learning walks’ so they have a thorough knowledge of what goes on in school. They keep themselves up to date. They make sure that staff and pupils are safe.
