GOVERNORS

What we do.

Every school has to have a Governing Body made up of a number of governors to oversee the running of the school..  Our Head Teacher, Mrs Orchard, organises and manages the schools on a day to day basis, within policies and guidance.  The governors are accountable to the Academy Trust of Melksham and, most importantly our community – our children, our staff, our parents and our local people.

The governing body is responsible for

  • Making sure the school provides the best possible education for all its pupils.
  • All major decisions about the school and its future.
  • Setting the school’s vision and strategic aims,
  • Monitoring and evaluating performance to ensure the school is accountable to those it serves.
  • Acting as a critical friend to the head teacher
  • Setting budgets, policies and targets

So how do we do this?

The Governors meet six times each academic year, 1 full meeting per term. In addition to this there are two standing committees; Teaching & Learning and Finance & Premises Committee..  All governors are on at least one committee and some are on two!  The committees meet each term, sometimes more if there is urgent business to attend to.

The Governors role in school

The Governors with the support of the Head Teacher and staff consider issues and make decisions on a wide range of issues such as the following:

  • Child Protection
  • Standards
  • The curriculum
  • Admissions
  • School budget
  • Staffing
  • Discipline and attendance
  • Communication with key stakeholders
  • Ofsted inspection
  • Health, safety and welfare
  • Control and use of school premises
  • Organisational change

Specific responsibilities

Each governor has a number of delegated responsibilities with regard to subject areas – called link governors.  These cover all of the subject areas e.g. child protection, health and safety.

Who can be a governor?

To be a really effective set of governors ideally the Governing Body should be made up of a cross section of the community.  Each school’s governing body has a specific make up depending on what type of school it is.

Currently the Governing Body consists of:-

  • Foundation Governors who are appointed by the church
  • Parent Governors who are elected by parents
  • Staff Governors (including the Head Teacher) who represent the staff
  • Local Governors (formerly referred to as Co-Opted Governors)

How can you keep updated about the work of the Governing Body?

The minutes of the full Local Governing Body are, once approved, public document and therefore are available on request.

How You Can Contact Us?

If you would like the Governors to consider an issue, please write or email the Clerk to the Governors – Danny Holland either via the school office or by email dholland@broughtongifford.wilts.sch.uk
