Governors

What do Governors do ?

Governors are involved in every aspect of school life and usually take on specific roles according to their experience. We play a strategic role, concentrating on the underlying principles of how the school is run. Day-to-day management issues remain the responsibility of the head teacher and his staff.

Overall, governors have 3 key roles:

1. We take general responsibility for the school. We appoint the head teacher and together set the strategic direction of the school. 

2. We agree the school development plan and monitor progress against the targets set, holding the head teacher and senior leaders to account. 

3. We authorise the school budget each year, approve spending and monitor progress against the budget.

 

How do Governors work ?

We meet as a full governing body 4 times a year. We have two committees – Finance & Premises – Curriculum, Community, students and staff which also meet before a full governing body meeting to deal with matters of specific interest. Those committees report back to the full governing body. 

 

In between the meetings governors undertake work according to their responsibilities.  They visit school regularly to meet with staff and see how the children are doing. The Governors attend regular training. 

 

How are Governors appointed ?

We are required to have a designated number of governors from a number of categories. We can also adopt additional governors, known as associate governors, who can advise but not vote. 

 

Our current body consists of :

  • 2 Parent governors
  • 1 Staff governor
  • Co-opted Governor - Vacancy
  • 1 Foundation Ex-Officio
  • 4 Foundation Parochial Governors - 1 Vacancy
  • 2 Foundation Diocesan Governors
  • The head teacher

The term of office for a governor is four years. The Chair and Vice Chair are elected annually at the first meeting of the academic year. The Chair of Governors is Talie Harrison who can be contacted via the school office.
