Governors

All Governing Boards, no matter what type of schools or how many schools they govern, have three core functions:
Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

In our school the Full Governing Board meet every month (excluding August). Between these meetings individual governors are responsible for a portfolio, and have delegated responsibility for defined areas of work. Any work undertaken by the portfolio holders is reported to the full board at their next meeting.

In addition the board has a pay and performance committee, which meets three times a year, with delegated responsibility for ensuring that staff appraisal is appropriately carried out.

There are two further committees which only meet if there is a need for them to do so. These committees are convened to consider any formal proceedings, such as a staff disciplinary issue or the permanent exclusion of a pupil.
