The articles of government for our size school require us to have:

5 elected parent governors
1 LA governor
1 Headteacher
1 elected staff governor
1 elected support staff governor

7 co-opted governors (of which up to 3 could be members of staff).

The usual route for raising questions, making comments, or airing concerns about the school is via a class teacher or headteacher.  However, parents and others are welcome to contact any governors they wish to do so.

Recent education acts have given governors increasing responsibilities in the running of schools.  Their main duties, in close partnership with the headteacher, are:

helping to establish the aims and policies of the school;

to ensure that safeguarding for all staff and pupils is provided;

to publish specified information to parents;

to exercise general direction in the conduct and curriculum of the school;

to ensure the right provision is made for children with special educational needs;

to deploy the school’s delegated resources according to the school’s priorities and needs;

to appoint, promote and deal with personnel matters generally, in accordance with the LA and national conditions of service;

to monitor and agree the School Development Plan;

to determine the use to which school premises may be put, by the local community outside the school days;

to oversee the condition of the school premises;

to draw up an action plan after inspection and monitor its implementation.
