Meet the Governors

The role of the Governing Body is defined under the Education Act 2002 as:

 

The Governing Body shall conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school.

 

The Governing Body has specific legal responsibilities, and its main tasks are:

 

·     To provide a strategic view

·     To support and challenge

·     To ensure accountability

 

The Governing Body has a duty to present an annual report to the parents.

 

There are 4 main types of Governors plus the Headteacher:

 

Parent governors ­ they are elected by parents of children at the school and they are responsible for ensuring links with parents.

 

Community governors ­ they are elected by the Governing Body from members of the local community and they are responsible for ensuring links with the community.

 

Local Authority governors ­ they apply to the Local Authority to become Governors and are then appointed to a school to represent the interest of the Local Authority.

 

Teacher governors ­ a representative from the teaching staff to ensure links with staff.

 

If you have any questions about anything to do with the school in the first instance you should always contact the staff and/or headteacher at the school.  However, if you feel that there is something appropriate to the Governing Body then you may contact any of the members that you feel appropriate.
