The Role of the Governing Body
Recent legislation has widened the responsibilities of school governors, but broadly governing bodies oversee the work of the school and make sure it provides a good quality education for its pupils and uses it's resources to maximum effectiveness.
Working in partnership with the head and other staff, governors are involved in:
The function and remit of the committees are as follows:
Attainment & Progress (Chair: Elaine Sexton): A committee operating under the delegation of the Full Governing Body to ensure that the school meets the requirements of the National curriculum, to analyse data for attainment and progress, to receive reports on implementation of standards in all respects and reports to the Full Governing Body.
Resources and Safeguarding (Chair: Michelle Rhodes): A committee operating under the delegation of the Full Governing Body to view progress on premises, school finance, safeguarding matters and personnel matters and report back to the Full Governing Body.
Pay: A committee operating under the delegation of the Full Governing Body that deals with all staff pay matters (with the exception of the headteacher) and implements pay policy with consideration to staff performance.
Pay Appeals: A committee operating under the delegation of the Full Governing Body to consider any appeals against decisions of the Pay Committee.
Pupil Discipline: The Governing Body can delegate some or all of its functions in respect of exclusions to a committee consisting of at least three governors and such a committee may be called the Pupil Discipline Committee where one has been established.
Staff Discipline/Dismissal: To consider disciplinary matters and dismissals where these functions have not been delegated to the Headteacher under the Staffing Regulations 2009 or, in the case of discipline, where the Headteacher has had detailed prior involvement.
Staff Discipline/Dismissal Appeals: To consider any appeals against decisions by the Headteacher/Staff Disciplinary/Dismissal Committee.
