Governors

The School Governors, in consultation with the Head Teacher and staff, develop the policies and standards for the good governance of the School. Responsibility for the implementation of policies and maintenance of standards is delegated to the Head Teacher and on to the staff. Governors make a positive contribution by bringing their experience to help the school provide the best possible education for every one of its pupils. Governors contribute to the development of the school in setting the school’s vision and the strategic framework within which the school operates; determining the character, aims and ethos of the school and developing and monitoring school policies, plans and procedures.

 

The Governing Body's work is focused on the three core functions of ensuring that the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school are clearly defined, that the Head Teacher performs his or her responsibilities for the educational performance of the school, and that there is sound, proper and effective use of the school’s financial resources. Governors adhere to an annually updated  Code of Conduct that sets out their responsibilities and what is expected of them.

 

Governors meet once each term as a Full Governing Body, and committees of typically 6 or 8 governors meet once each term in addition. Committees, such as Ethos, Performance Management and Pay look after specific areas of school governance and accountability. Individual governors have specific areas of responsibility which will involve them in school visits and discussions with appropriate school staff, and which they report on to the Governing Body as a whole.

 

The Governing Body re-constituted in August 2015, with 14 governors. Foundation governors are appointed by the Archbishop. Other governors are elected from time to time by the teaching and non-teaching staff, and by parents. The Governing Body can appoint one co-opted governor and the Local Authority also appoints one governor. Governors serve for four years, except co-opted governors who serve for one year.
