Hardwick Community Primary School – Governing Body

 

 

 

Hardwick Community Primary School

 

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 in the 2017 / 2018 school year we undertook this work by meeting 6 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.

During the year the Resources Committee met 4 times to consider and challenge the strategies being used to support the school’s development and improvement.

 

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
