South Moreton School Governors

 

 

 Results of Parent Survey 2014

 

Dear Parent

 

Every maintained school has a Governing Body made up of a team of volunteers both from within and outside the school community. Governors bring a range of skills ranging from practical teaching knowledge, information technology, communications, premises management, finance, design, art and sport. Above all, they bring additional enthusiasm and imagination to help improve the school experience for children.

The Governing Body is required to focus on the long-term development and improvement of the school and has collective responsibility for decisions made relating to spending the school’s budget, pupil welfare, health and safety, curriculum and other matters laid down by law. It provides a visible form of accountability and support for the Headteacher and staff for the standards the children achieve and the quality of education.

At South Moreton School the full Governing Body comprises a maximum of 15 members:

• 8 Co-opted Governors, elected to provide a link between the school and the local community;

• 1 Local Education Authority Governor;

• 4 Parent Governors elected by parents and carers of children at the school;

• 1 Staff Governor elected by members of staff at the school plus the Head Teacher.

At the beginning of the first meeting of the Autumn term, one governor is elected as Chair and one as Vice-Chair. The Governing Body is supported by a trained Clerk who takes minutes and provides advice and support.

From time to time there are vacancies - If you are interested in becoming a Governor, please e-mail the school, for my attention and I shall respond to your enquiry. Enquiries can also be made through the Head Teacher, Mrs Amanda Smith, or the Staff Governor, Mr Tim Mean.
