We currently have a vacancy for a parent governor and are seeking nominations for an enthusiastic and committed parent or carer to join the governing board.
There are no particular qualifications required for the role but, following an analysis of the results of our skills audit, we have skills gaps in the areas of health and safety, safeguarding and finance and we would be particularly keen to receive nominations from someone with experience in any of these areas.
The core functions of the governing board are:
· Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
· Holding senior leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation, its pupils, and the performance management of staff.
· Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.
If you think you are the right person to join our team please contact the school office.
The Governing Body
The Governing Body has a statutory responsibility for the strategic management and development of the school. It is the Governing Body’s statutory duty to promote high standards of educational attainment and ensure effective management of the school’s resources.
We are responsible for ensuring that all relevant policies and procedures are in place and that appropriate targets are set. We monitor and review the school budget and appoint staff, including the head teacher.
We are not responsible for the day to day management and operation of the school. This is the responsibility of Head Teacher and her Senior Leadership Team, with whom we work closely to fulfil our statutory obligations.
Please see our TERMS OF REFERENCE which defines the purpose of the meetings.
All Governors can be contacted via the school office.
