The Value of School Governance                                                                    

Governing Bodies make decisions, which are in the best interests of the children.  Keepng the decision-making as close as possible to those that are affected by the decisions makes for sound and efficient leadership and governance.  The current government's commitment to the 'Big Society' supports this, and the school governance model fits into this concept neatly.  Fulfilling the role of a school governor is, therefore, both a serious undertaking and enormously rewarding.  Not only do governors bring their on knowledge and skills to the role, but, in learning how schools are run, they often develop their understanding of leadership.  The majority of emloyers appreciate this and are supportive of their staff taking on the responsibility.  In addition, contributing to the growth and development of a school and seeing tangible improvements in the attainment and well-bring of the children is a satisfying and important contribution to the local community.

The Role of the Governing Board

The Governing Board is responsible for the conduct of the school, and must promote high standards of educational achievement.  It is the school's accountable board and as such:

Provides a strategic view of the school by establishing a vision and setting the purpose and aims of the school within an agreed policy framework.  It appoints and performance manages the Headteacher, agreeing the school improvment stratgey which includes setting statutory targets with supporting budgets and staffing structures;

Monitors and evaluates the work of the shcool by reviewing the performance of the Headteacher, the effectiveness of the policy framework, progress towards targets, and the effectiveness of the school improvement strategy;

Signs off the self-evaluation process and responds to school improvement service and Ofsted reports as necessary.  In addition, it holds the Headteacher to account for the perfomance of the school and ensures that parents are involved, consulted and informed as appropriate, with information to the community being made available as required.

In order to do this, governors need to gain knowledge of how the school operates through training, by attending meetings and by getting to know the school community, for example through a small number of visits to the school to find out more about being a governor please contact the school on 01908 376011.

Meetings

Our Governing Board meets formally a minimum of three times a year. Meetings dates are usually set well in advance and meetings generally last between two and three hours.  Governors are expectd to be well prepared for these meetings and attendance is expected, with apologies only for good reasons.

The Governing Board delegates work to two committees (Teaching & Learning and Finance & Resources) and/or working parties and task groups, which meet between the Governing Board meetings.  In addition some governors volunteer to fulfil specific roles, such as being Special Educational Needs governor, or the Health and Safety Governor, or the link governor for a particular year or subject.  Most governors arrange a couple of shorter visits to school and classrooms focusing on key prioirities so that they can see how the school is addressing issues identified for development. In addition, informal visits to special events such as drama productions and sports day are encouraged.
