The role of a Governor
The purpose of a Governing Body is to help provide the best possible education for pupils. Governors meet regularly with the Headteacher and staff to decide the school’s aims and policies, and to oversee the efficient running of the school. The Governors work in partnership with the school and local authority and have particular responsibility for:
- Setting aims and planning for the future of the school
- Agreeing targets to raise standards of achievement
- Ensuring that the curriculum meets the needs of all pupils
- Monitoring the school budget
- Staffing issues, including appointing the Headteacher and other staff, and determining salaries
- Deciding the school’s policies
- Making sure all pupils have equal opportunities within the school and providing for pupils with special educational needs
- Challenging and supporting the Headteacher, as a critical friend
- Ensuring the school site is well maintained, safe and secure
- Dealing with complaints about the school
The Governing Board of Henleaze Infant School meet at Full Governing Body meetings. In addition, a Resources Committee meeting is held once per term.
