The Governing Body
The governing body is made up of fourteen people, who are volunteers. They represent different parts of the community: staff members, including the head teacher, parents, the local community and the Local Authority. Members of staff and parents are elected and the Local Authority appoints its representatives. The governing body can co-opt members of the local community in order to try and ensure it has available a good range of experience and skills.
The main duties of the governing body are:
To develop and maintain a vision for the development of the school
To oversee the quality of education in the school and the standards being achieved by pupils
To agree and monitor the developments the school is making to improve itself
To set the budget and monitor the use of all the resources available to the school
It is also involved in making appointments to the school and can deal with complaints and grievances.
In order to carry out its duties, the governing body meets twice a term. It also has a number of sub-committees which meet to consider some matters in more detail. Once a year, the governing body invites parents to a meeting at which it explains what it has done over the year and listens to comments and any concerns from parents.
Being a school governor is an interesting but challenging role. Training is provided by the Local Authority. There are vacancies from time to time. If you are interested in becoming a governor at the school, please contact our current Chair Mrs Kerys Shepperd.
