Governors

Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about the school's governors, and the work that we do.

 

Our main role is to support the Headteacher and the staff – the phrase often used to describe this role is ‘a critical friend’. We help them to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence across the whole spectrum of school life. The two key documents used for this are the School Improvement Plan (SIP) and the School Self Evaluation Form (SSE). The SIP sets out an annual strategic plan for the school, with targets that everyone works towards and the SEF sets out how well the school is doing and where we aim to make improvements.

Our legal duties include:-

  • setting strategic direction, policies and objectives
  • approving the school budget
  • reviewing progress against the school's budget and objectives
  • appointing, challenging and supporting the headteacher

The whole Governing Body meets at least once every (new) term. We also meet regularly in 4 smaller committees:

Finance

Facilities & Premises

Curriculum

Personnel

These committees report back to the Full Governor meetings.

There are several categories of governor, appointed by different groups who have an interest in the school. These are:

Community governors; Foundation governors; Local Authority (“LA”) governors; Parent governors, and Staff governors. All governors have equal status.

We are committed to providing an excellent learning environment for all pupils to enjoy during their time at our school.

Our Full Governing Body meetings are usually held in the evening.  We attend training sessions and seminars to help us keep up to date with changes in schools and education and to help us do our job effectively. We also go into school to meet with the Headteacher, other members of staff and pupils to help us find out how the school is progressing towards its targets.

If you wish to know more, or are interested in becoming a governor, please contact us care of the School Office or email us at wrington.pri@n-somerset.gov.uk
