Governors

Who are the Governing Body?

 

The governing body at Hugglescote Community Primary school is a group of eleven volunteers, plus one Clerk and one Associate. The body includes the following:

  • Chair to Governors
  • Vice Chair
  • Parent governor
  • Head Teacher
  • Local Authority governor
  • Co-opted governors
  • Staff governor

The governing body holds a full meeting once per term.  Additional sub-committee meetings are also held.  The sub-committees are:

  • Resources
  • Personnel
  • Curriculum and Standards

 

Roles & Responsibilities

 

The governors are the strategic leaders of the school.  For maintained schools this is reflected in the law, which states that the purpose of maintained school governing bodies is to ‘conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school.’ The Governing body has three core strategic functions:  

1) Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction 

2) Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and  the performance management of staff 

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

This is achieved by setting targets for the school, ongoing self-evaluation, committee reports and Governing body minutes. All Governors have voting rights in the committees they serve, unless stated otherwise.


Parents Concerns / Complaints

The school is a happy place for staff and pupils for most of the time. However problems will arise from time and you can expect that these will quickly, sensitively and effectively resolved. The first point of contact is the class teacher followed by the Head Teacher. Governors are unable to resolve concerns themselves as there structured guidelines to follow.

The four stages of the complaints are:
  • Stage 1 - complaint to staff member
  • Stage 2 - complaint to head teacher
  • Stage 3 - complaint to chair governors
  • Stage 4 - complaint heard by governing body's complaints appeal

Should you wish to contact the Governing Body this can be done in writing via the school office.

 

Comments Box

A governor comments box is kept in the reception area at all times.  Any comments put in this box will be treated with confidence.  The box is checked on a weekly basis.
