Meet the Governors

CROESO! Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

Members of the Governing Body work with the Headteacher on a voluntary basis to strategically manage the school in partnership with the local authority. They are a corporate body consisting of unpaid volunteers with a duty to act in the best interests of the whole school, and they work diligently as a collective for the benefit of the pupils. This academic year our priorities are:

 

1

To ensure pupil and staff wellbeing needs are fully supported in school and preparations continue for Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal Act

2

To ensure that pupils have opportunity to catch up on basic skills - in literacy + numeracy + digital skills within a broad and balanced curriculum - particularly reading + number skills across all year groups.

3 To ensure that teaching and learning approaches (including home learning) and curriculum planning are effective and support the progress of all learners in a changing climate

 

WHO ARE THE SCHOOL GOVERNORS?

All governing bodies have a core group of governors consisting of:

  • Parent governors
  • Teacher governors
  • Staff governors
  • LA governors
  • Community governors
  • Headteacher (acting in the capacity of a governor where this is his/her choice).

They are elected for a period of four years and have three main roles:

  • STRATEGIC PLANNING
  • BEING A THE CRITICAL FRIEND
  • ACCOUNTABILITY

WHAT DO GOVERNORS DO?

Governors work together with the headteacher and staff of the school to make sure that the school provides good quality teaching and learning for our children and raise standards.

They are expected to:- 

  • Agree the aims and values of the school
  • Agree policies
  • Approve the School Development or School Improvement Plan
  • Approve and monitor the allocation and expenditure of the school budget
  • Make sure the national curriculum is taught and there is sufficient staff to teach it
  • Monitor and review the school’s progress
  • Ensure individual pupils' needs are met, including additional needs
  • Recruitment and Selection of some Staff
  • Give parents information about the school
  • Produce action plans for improvement following school inspections
  • Promote healthy eating
  • Establish and maintain positive links with the wider community
  • Support the day-to-day operational decisions taken by the headteacher
  • Promote the effectiveness of the governing body
  • However, this is not a definitive list!
