Responsibilities of the Governing Body
The Governing Body's primary purpose is to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the Executive Headteacher and Head of School, who are responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies.
Governors meet each term to engage in dialogue and discussions to monitor the provision of learning across the school. In each meeting, members receive a detailed report from school leaders on all aspects of education data demonstrating the current attainment and progress of all pupils, pupil attendance, SEN and quality of teaching across the school.
As well as attending meetings the Local governors of each school regularly undertake activities and monitoring in school to ensure they have a sound understanding of the curriculum taught and the achievements of students across the board .
The governors' aim is to ensure all children are receiving the best possible education and individual outcomes.
The Governors are responsible for:
overseeing all fiscal and personnel matters in school
setting the annual school budget
monitoring expenditure against the budget and in turn reporting this to the full governing body.
Governors act as a critical friend to ensure the budget is suitably allocated to support the learning of all children as fully as possible. They liaise with the senior management team to provide support and guidance with all matters relating to the running of the school grounds, premises, security and health & safety.
Governors are also responsible for all human resource issues within school such as setting and reviewing the school’s pay policy, reviewing the performance management policies and undertaking any formal consultations with staff.
