The Governing Body consists of parents, teachers, members of the local community and people appointed by the Local Authority. Governors are appointed to act together to:
- help to establish the aims and policies of the school
- interview and select staff
- advise on spending of the school’s budget
- ensure the National Curriculum is being delivered
- provide outside advice and support and a link between the local community
Advice, support and training are provided by the School Governors Service to help Governors fulfil their legal requirements. The school employs a Governors’ Clerk to deal with agendas, minutes and correspondence but Governors themselves do not receive any payment for carrying out their duties.
Parents Governors are elected by parents of children in the school and serve on the Governing Body for 4 years, as do all Governors. They can bring views of parents to the Governing Body although they speak and act as individuals.
The Governing Body usually meets twice a term. Dates and minutes of meetings are available from the office. The Governors are responsible for the publication of the Prospectus. Miss Brammah and the staff encourage parental involvement in the life of the school: becoming a Parent Governor or attending a Governors’ meeting is another element of “Parents in Partnership”.
If you would like more information on any aspect of School Governors please contact Mrs Curtis or myself.
