The role of the Board of Governors is to make key strategic decisions for the school and to ensure that all statutory duties are met.

Governing bodies are made up of several categories of school governors who are elected or appointed in different ways. These include staff governors, parent governors, co-opted governors and local authority governors.

The full Governing body meets once every half term, which is six times each academic year. Additional meetings may be called if required.

Certain responsibilities are devolved to committees within the governing body. These committees monitor and discuss aspects of the school and report their findings to the full governing body.

Full Governing Body Meetings

All Governors formally meet at least six times a year. This is an opportunity to discuss the work of sub-committees, review documentation, consider feedback from Governor visits/monitoring activities and listen to reports from the Headteacher and school staff. Actions and responsibility are delegated to four main sub-committees that meet regularly throughout the year. Their main responsibilities are detailed, below.

 

Finance

Human Resources (HR)

Prepare and monitor the budget; review regulations and contractual arrangements; consider and advise on matters to ensure best value.

Review pay policy; monitor staff appraisal; make recommendation on HR expenditure; review staff structures; oversee appointments; review professional development for staff.

Pupils and Curriculum

Premises and Health & Safety

Review and monitor: the School Improvement Plan; the Self-Evaluation Summary document; curriculum policy and schemes; assessment, including procedures for measuring attainment and progress; attendance; behaviour and discipline; SEN provision; and the impact of Pupil Premium funding.

Premises: Monitor and be up-to-date with legal obligations for premises maintenance; manage Devolved Formula Capital funds and capital projects.

Health and Safety: review accidents, procedures and policies; refer to statutory regulations and oversee provision of training.

Other sub-committees

Other smaller committees exist, but they only formally meet when required. This covers aspects such as: disciplinary, admissions and Headteacher Performance Management (HTPM).
