Governors

Who are our Governors?

Every school has a governing Body made up of various members of the community. There can be between 9 and 20 members depending on the size of the school. The governing body works closely with the Head teacher, who is responsible for the day to day management of the school. They form part of the school leadership team, who are responsible for strategic planning and policy development and strive to make sur the school provides a good quality education for all its children.

 

Governors don’t get paid for their work: they are all volunteers.

The Governing Body:

Is a ‘critical friend to the School

Explains its policies to parents and the community

Helps to settle its disputes, fairly and conscientiously

Oversee its policies and its use of resources

Guidance:

The above register of interests must capture relevant business and pecuniary interests of members, directors, local governors of academies within a multi-academy trust and senior employees, including:

  • Directorships, partnerships and employments with businesses
  • Trusteeships and governorships at other educational institutions and charities
  • For each interest: the name of the business; the nature of the business; the nature of the interest; and the date the interest began

The register must also identify any material interests arising from close family relationships between the Trust’s members and directors, and relationships between members and directors and employees. Close family relationships are defined as a close member of the family, or member of the same household, who may be expected to influence, or be influenced by, the person. This includes, but is not limited to, a child, parent, spouse or civil partner.

Registers for the Trust’s members and directors will be published on the Trust’s main website. Individual academies within the Trust should ensure that registers for members of Local Management Boards and Senior Employees (Head Teachers) are maintained on their own respective websites.
