The role of the governing body is vital as it provides strategic management and acts as a “critical friend”, supporting the work of the headteacher and other staff. Governors work with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education and together with the headteacher, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school, they set the school’s aims and policies. The school has a delegated budget from the local authority to cover salaries, running costs, maintenance and equipment, and the governing body is responsible for managing this budget. You do not have to be an expert on education to be a school governor, but will hold valuable skills set to bring to the collective, and we value the experience that all governors bring to the table.
We currently have vacancies for 2 Co-Opted Governors… Co-opted governors are appointed by the governing body. They are people who in the opinion of the governing body have the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school. Nominations are invited from parents, carers, other family and community members who have valuable skills and experience to bring to the governing body. Co-opted governors can be appointed to other sub-committees and have full voting rights. Interested? Then we would like to hear from you.
