LEARNING ACHIEVING ASPIRING CARING
The purpose of the governing body
The governing body is the school’s accountable body. It is responsible for the conduct of the school and for promoting high standards. The governing body aims to ensure that children are attending a successful school which provides them with a good education and supports their well-being.
The overall role of Governors is to support the Headteacher and the staff – the phrase often used to describe this role is ‘a critical friend’. Governors help the Headteacher and Staff to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence across the whole spectrum of school life. The two key documents used for this are the School Development Plan (SDP) and the Self Evaluation Form (SEF). The SDP sets out a strategic plan for the school, with targets that everyone works towards and the SEF sets out how well the school is doing and where we aim to make improvements.
The Governing Body delegates certain functions and responsibilities to its two sub-committees. The Standards and Achievement Committee focuses broadly on aspects of teaching and learning, together with outcomes for pupils. The Business Management Committee is broadly responsible for aspects relating to finance, premises and staffing.
The Chairs of both committees plus serving committee members are detailed in the List of Governors below.
