THE GOVERNING BODY

 

Governors

In accordance with the Government’s requirement for all governing bodies, the three core strategic functions of Moorside Junior School Governing body are: 

      1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
      2. Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.
      3. Overseeing the financial performance for the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Together, the Governors are responsible for:

      • Setting aims and targets for the school and checking the school’s progress towards attaining these.
      • Monitoring the effectiveness of the school’s policies and plans.
      • Accounting for the performance of the school and the Governing Body.
      • Working with the Headteacher to make sure that teaching at school is effective and of good quality and the children are making the best possible progress.
      • Taking general responsibility for the school and its budget.

  There are several different types of Governor:

    • Parent Governor - Elected from parents at the school by parents at the school.
    • Staff Governor - Elected from staff at the school by staff at the school.
    • Local Authority (LA) Governors  - Appointed by the LEA.
    • Co-opted Governors - Appointed by members of the Governing Body. They are intended to be representatives of the local community.
