Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

 

The Role of a Governor

 

School Governors are people from the school/local community who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education. They must be aged 18 or over at the time of their appointment. They are elected to serve on the Governing Body for a set period of time.

 

Governors come from all different backgrounds and all have various knowledge and experience needed to help the Headteacher make the right decisions for the school.  Together they are known as the Governing Body. 

 

Governors have an important part to play in raising school standards through their three key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and monitoring and evaluating school performance.

 

The Governing Body

The Governing Body at Redscope Primary School has a total of 7 Governors plus the clerk to Governors. The membership is as follows:

The Headteacher

2 Parent Governors

1 Local Authority Governor

1 Staff Governor

2 Co-opted Governors

 

This is called the Constitution of the Governing Body.

 

The Governing Body is responsible for the conduct of its school, education of pupils, Safeguarding, Health & Safety and must promote high standards of educational achievement for all pupils. They achieve this by setting the following framework:

>   Setting suitable aims and objectives
>   Agreeing policies, targets and priorities
>   Monitoring and reviewing aims, objectives and policies to ensure targets are   
    achieved.

Governing bodies are required to meet formally a minimum of three times a year. 

 

Governors attend Full Governors meetings each term and many other supplementary meetings related to Finance, premises, Staff and Curriculum.

Each Governing Body has a Clerk who will organise meetings, ensure Governors receive relevant up to date information and produce accurate minutes from each meeting held.
