Meet the Governors

The Role of Governors

Governors bring many skills and experiences to their role in supporting, promoting and protecting the interests and ethos of a school and its staff. They are an important link between the school and the local community.

Governors have a number of responsibilities:

  1. Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction

  • Agreeing its policies and objectives

     

  1. Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

  • Monitoring the curriculum

  • Monitoring pupil progress

     

  1. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and ensuring that the school’s budget is responsibly spent

  • Reviewing and approving the school’s budget,

  • Appointing the Head Teacher and monitoring his / her performance.

Decisions taken by Governors are based on the advice of committees, made up of members of the Governing Body, and which deal with specific issues and report back to the full Governing Body. The two sub committees are the Performance and Standards and the Resources committees.

All committees meet formally once per term. The minutes are available for parents to access. Governors with special responsibilities ie finance, Literacy, Maths , SEND and RE also meet on a termly basis with the appropriate member of staff.

Governors are elected for an initial 4 year term and all are offered the opportunity to undergo training to ensure they are up to date with legislation and to improve their skills.

All governors can be contacted through the school office or by email at
admin@willowsprimary.org.uk
