Our School Governors

  “The principle of learning together is very much embedded in the approach to school improvement and encourages everyone to get on board and contribute.  There remains a core group of experienced governors who are knowledgeable about the school and have the capacity to support those new to the role. Governors are involved in the day to day life of the school. They are effective in offering the appropriate levels of support and challenge.”

Annual Report from the School Improvement Partner November 2018

 

Role of Governing Body

 

School governors are people, from all walks of life, who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education. They are one of the largest volunteer groups in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards. The role of the governing body is key to the effectiveness of a school.

 

Its key functions are to:

  • set the aims and objectives for the school
  • set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)

 

Effective governors do not need educational expertise but do need to be committed to their school. They also need to be able to work as an enthusiastic member of the governing body team. The Headteacher works closely with the governing body as its principal professional advisor. Governing body policy decisions are then implemented by the headteacher in the day-to-day running of the school.

 

Governors meet a number of times each term and also take part in regular training events to ensure their skills are up-to-date. Examples of training and courses recently undertaken by our school governors include:

 

  • Governing Body Role in School Improvement – effective challenge and support
  • Child Protection Training
  • Health & Safety Training
  • Finance – school finance training

The Governors of Euxton St. Mary's Catholic Primary School  believe it is important that Governing Boards reflect the diversity of the school communities they serve. Diverse Boards promote inclusive school environments and provide diverse role models for staff and young people.

The Governors are currently collecting data on the diversity of the board, including data on age, gender, and ethnicity. They will use that data to inform their recruitment and training needs and ensure there is always a diverse range of perspectives around the table to support robust decision making. At the present time, we do not publish this diversity data online, as individual Governors could be identified, and we have a legal obligation to protect their personal data.
