Governors

What School Governors Do:

A school governing body has a strategic role in the development of the school but does not become involved in day-to-day management issues – that is the role of the Head Teacher.

You are there to:

 

  • Provide a strategic view - help to set and maintain the broad framework within which the Head Teacher and the staff should run the school
  • Act as a critical friend - provide the Head Teacher with support and offer advice and information but also to provide some challenge. The governing body is there to monitor and evaluate the school’s effectiveness and governors should therefore be prepared to ask challenging questions
  • To ensure accountability - the Head Teacher and staff report to the governing body on the school’s performance. In turn the governing body is accountable to all stakeholders on the school’s overall performance

 

Types of Governor at Elworth Hall Primary School:

  • Parent Governors - parents or carers elected by other parents or carers with children at the School or, on occasion, appointed by the governing body;
  • Staff Governors - the Head Teacher and staff members elected by teaching and support Staff;
  • Community and Co-Opted Governors - individuals chosen by governors from the local area who represent community interests;
  • LA Governors - appointed by the Local Authority who take regard of the skills and experience which schools require and appoint candidates who support the schools’ ethos and mission;
  • Associate Members - a discretionary category appointed by the governing body from individuals who may be able to make specific contributions, but who is not a governor and has no vote at full governing body meetings but may have limited voting rights at committee level.

 

Committee Structure at Elworth Hall Primary School:

The Full Governing Body (FGB) meets three times each year, termly.  The FGB is divided into three sub committees that also meet three times each year.  Please see the table outlining our committee members.  The three Committees are:
