A formal meeting is held once a term for the full Governing Body. There are two committees, Resources and Whole School Performance,  both hold a further meeting each term to discuss issues such as personnel, finance, H&S, school curriculum and outcomes for pupils.

Governors are drawn from different areas of the community including parents, the local authority, the church and wider community and staff representatives. 

Each year Governors are asked to sign a Code of Conduct which outlines and clarifies their roles and responsibilities ensuring the Body functions efficiently. Training is available and Governors seek to ensure that the body as a whole have the appropriate knowledge and skills to fulfil the role. .

What are the Benefits of Being a School Governor?

There are several reasons why you might want to become a school governor.

Firstly, it is a way to contribute locally, and to society as a whole, through improving children’s education, opportunities, and futures. Your actions and your skills could help our Federation to develop and become more effective in teaching and providing for our pupils.

You could also have an impact on the important decisions that are being made in our community. For example, governors have recently been part of the discussions around how our school will continue to provide education – and keep pupils and staff safe – through school closures due to coronavirus.

Additionally, being a governor allows you to experience leadership, and develop your negotiation, influencing, and teamwork skills. This could help your professional development in any sector.

The role of school governor is both a challenging and rewarding one, and governors are influential over the success of a school. Through monitoring and evaluating progress, governors ensure that a school is running effectively, and can take action if it is not. Plus, being a governor can help you to develop your career and have an impact on education in your community.
