The Role of the Governing Body

 

Our Governing Body meets regularly to help with strategic planning for the school.  The Governing Body is made up of people from various occupations and backgrounds, including those that live within our local community and have children within the school.  They contribute a diverse range of skills and knowledge to successfully support and lead the school's development. They do not manage the school; that is the job of the headteacher and the leadership team.  However, they do work in close partnership with the Headteacher and are responsible for setting the overall aims and objectives for the school and agreeing, monitoring and reviewing policies, targets, priorities and performance.

These meet regularly throughout the year to shape decisions to feed back to the Governing Body as a whole.

 

Resources Committee

This committee helps to shaped and closely monitors the impact of policies relating to staffing and financial procedures. They oversee school budgets and help to guide and make major decisions about how the school's resources are used and how staffing is organised.  Alongside the Standards and Effectiveness committee, they maintain a close overview of how Pupil Premium and Sports Premium funding is spent and ensure that the impact is closely monitored.

 

The Chair of this Committee is Mr Ashraf Mulla.

 

Standards and Effectiveness Committee

This committee has oversight of how the curriculum is taught within school and closely monitors how different cohorts and groups of children in school are provided for and the achievements that they make.  They consider:

  • how the national curriculum is taught.
  • how the school can encourage pupil's spiritual, moral and social development
  • how the school provides for all its pupils, including those with special needs

 

The Chair of this Committee is Mrs Kathryn Welford.

 

There are other committees that meet if or when needed, such as a Complaints Committee. The Chair of Governors has the power to call on available governors to make up these committees.
