What does the Governing Body do?
The Governing Body works with the Headteacher to develop the strategic direction of the school to ensure that the children at Hanbury get the best possible education and can develop well in a safe, caring and stimulating environment.
The Governing Body acts as a critical friend, giving support to the Head in leading the school and ensuring statutory duties are carried out. The day to day responsibility of running the school is the responsibility of the Headteacher and Leadership Team but the Governors have a role to ensure everything is done to the highest standard.
The Governing Body has a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view towards promoting high standards of achievement. It has many responsibilities including monitoring the school’s finances, appointing staff, reviewing performance management, setting targets, monitoring and reviewing policies and many more.
All Governors also belong to one of the smaller committees –i.e. Curriculum and Pastoral; Finance; Personnel; Premises and Health and Safety. These committees report back to the full governing body each term.
Each Governor has individual responsibilities such as monitoring a subject area or a year group. Reports are fed back to the Governing Body.
When do they meet?
Governors visit the school regularly, both formally and informally.
The committees meet at least once per term.
The full Governing Body meets twice in the Autumn term and at least once in the Spring and Summer term.
