PAUNTLEY CofE PRIMARY SCHOOL GOVERNING BODY
Welcome to the Governor’s section. School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education. Their role is voluntary.
The role of the Governing Body is to provide strategic leadership and accountability for the school, and to ensure the clarity of its vision, ethos and strategic direction. We work with the Headteacher and staff to set the school’s aims and objectives, and establish policies for achieving these.
We contribute to the strategic discussions at governing body meetings and hold the senior leaders to account by monitoring the educational performance of the school, its pupils, and the performance management of the leaders. The Governing Body also oversees the financial performance of the school, and makes sure its money is well spent. We ensure that the school staff have the resources and support they require to do their jobs well and assist with a wide range of specific tasks.
The Governoring Body is NOT responsible for the day to day running of the school.
Being such a small governing body we find that a lot of the roles overlap and therefore we are all invited to attend the committees and share the load. It is particularly rewarding to visit the school in our capacity as Governors and see the school in action through learning walks, work scrutinies and pupil conferencing.
