The Role of a Governor
Different Governing Bodies operate in different ways, but governors will be expected to do far more than merely attend meetings. Effective governors will visit the school regularly to see and understand how the school operates. They will visit the school for a particular purpose and produce reports for their fellow Governors. Governors will also be expected to receive and understand reports from the headteacher and senior leaders so they can question, challenge and support, thereby improving the quality of the education provided at the School.
The governing body operates a code of conduct which sets an ethos of professionalism and high expectations of governors. Governors are provided with this part of their induction into the school and will be expected to work within it, since a governing body operates as a corporate entity with corporate responsibility.
There are six Governing Body meetings per year.
All governors are elected to a term of four years apart from Mrs Amelia Smith, the
Headteacher, whose term is open.
