The Governors meet twice per term to discuss matters of school and LA business. Sub-committee meetings are also held regularly.
The role of the parent Governor
Parent Governors play a vital role at the school, holding the unique position of having a parental viewpoint – through their children, they have a first hand experience of the delivery of the curriculum, and how the school is perceived. This enables them to bring a different perspective to the strategic management of the school.
Parent governors are representative parents rather than representatives of parents.
To effectively fulfill the role, parent governors should:
- Make themselves known to the parent body
- Listen impartially to concerns raised by parents
- Guide parents regarding appropriate lines of action and procedures
- Present a balanced view of issues, representing different sections of the community
Powers and Duties
The legal responsibilities of the Governing Body include helping to establish the aims and policies of the school. They have a duty to ensure the effective running of the school by assisting with the School Development Plan, the Annual Budget, the selection and promotion of staff, and health and safety issues.
The Head Teacher is responsible for the internal organisation of the school.
