Hardwick Community Primary School – Governing Body

 

 

 

Every governing body has three core functions which are:

 

 

 

      Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

 

      Holding the Head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;

 

      Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

 

At Hardwick Community Primary School we undertake this work by meeting 4 times per year as a Full Governing Body to:

 

 

 

      Review what has been achieved against the School Development Plan

 

      Receive information about the school, including information about pupil progress, attendance, staff appraisal, financial information, health and safety and safeguarding.

 

      Ensure our statutory duties are being met

 

      Challenge the school and ourselves.

 

There is a Pupil Support Committee which meets 6 times a year, a Resources Committee which meets 3 times a yearand a Curriculum & Standards of Attainment Committee which meets at least twice a year to consider and challenge the strategies being used to help the school move forward.

 

 

 

Governors also:

 

                                                                                                                                   

 

      Ensure that policies are reviewed and updated to underpin the school’s work

 

      Visit the school to speak with staff and children about various aspects of the school

 

      Ensure that all statutory duties are being met

 

      Attend training both in and out of school to increase their knowledge about governance

 

      Prepare for each meeting by reading information to be able ask the challenging questions which help the school show that there is a continuous drive for improvement in all aspects of school life
