The role of the Board of Governors is to work closely with the Head teacher and staff to provide the very best education that we can for the children of our school. We are responsible for monitoring and evaluating the performance and effectiveness of the school, for ensuring that the budget is managed prudently and for supporting our excellent staff.
As governors, we want all our children to develop to their full potential academically and socially, so that they become responsible and caring adults in their later lives.Over the next year, we will publish our progress towards this goal, including our plan for the development of the governing body and what we intend to do to support the school in achieving its mission.
During 2014/15 Governors have:
- Continued to set the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school
- Held senior leaders to account for school improvement
- Ensured financial resources are well spent
- Engaged with a governance review to focus on developing ourselves as a governing body and attend training
- Carried out a skills audit of all governors so that we have a balanced range of skills
- Taken on individual responsibilities, such as monitoring English and Mathematics; pupil premium, appraisal, pay committee and health & safety.
This year, the Governors also plan to:
- Produce a governor’s development plan, focusing on what we need to do to support pupil achievement and progress and how we are going to do it.
- Produce an annual planner for our meetings so that we can focus on issues as they arise and not miss anything.
- Work towards every governor knowing the schools finances, barriers to achievement, and safeguarding.
- Work towards every governor knowing the Ofsted expectations of governors and be able to satisfy those expectations.
- Specify the monitoring we need to see and do, to ensure pupil progress is in line with expectations.
