Governors

 

GOVERNING BODY 2016 – 2017

Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards. The governing body is integral in the effectiveness of a school.

 

The Governor’s Role

The role of a governor is to contribute to the work of the governing body in ensuring high standards of achievement for all students in the school by:

  • Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the education performance of the school and its pupils
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
  • Having meaningful and effective engagement with parents, staff and the wider community
  • Assisting the school to build relationships with business and other employers in order to enhance the education and raise the aspirations of pupils.

The role of a governor is largely about thinking and questioning, not about doing.

The headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing body.

 

Governors

Membership of the Governing Body includes elected Parent Governors, Staff Representatives as well as members co-opted by the Governing Body and those nominated by the Local Authority. This ensures the Governing Body has the full range of necessary skills.

The Full Governing Body meets once each term. In addition, there are two committees which also meet each term to focus on Pupil Progress and People and Resources.

Comments from OFSTED about Chilwell School’s Governing Body – November 2014

‘The governing body oversees the school’s work very effectively, particularly in the strategies they use to ensure that teaching and achievement continue to improve’

 

‘The governing body has an impressive knowledge and understanding of the work of the school and is able to use this to steer the school forward’

 

‘Although the governors received detailed and comprehensive information from the headteacher, they find out much for themselves, through links with faculties and inviting staff to governing body meetings’

 

‘They understand data about the progress of the students and insist that it is simple and shows an accurate picture over time of how well the school is progressing’
