The Governing Body meets each term to engage in dialogue and discussions with the leadership of the school to enable them to monitor the provision of learning across the school. In each meeting they receive a detailed report from the head on all aspects of education data demonstrating the current attainment and progress of all pupils, reports on staff training and quality of teaching across the school.
As well as attending meetings the governors regularly undertake activities and monitoring in school to ensure they have a sound understanding of the curriculum taught and the achievements of students across the board. The governors' aim is to ensure all children are receiving the best possible education and individual outcomes.
Each term the committee oversees all fiscal and personnel matters in school. They are responsible for setting the annual school budget, monitoring expenditure against the budget. The governors act as a critical friend to ensure the budget is suitably allocated to support the learning of all children as fully as possible. They liaise with the senior management team to provide support and guidance with all matters relating to the running of the school grounds, premises, security and health & safety. The Governors are also responsible for all human resource issues within school such as setting and reviewing the school’s pay policy, reviewing the performance management policies and undertaking any formal consultations with staff.
Governors' Curriculum Statement
At the beginning of each topic the children are fortunate enough to have an 'Experience day' based around their topic that term. This engages and inspires their learning. It involves all areas of the curriculum and is a clear demonstration of the breadth and creativity of their future learning.
