Governance Information and Relevant Business and Pecuniary Interests (April 2017)

The purpose of our Governing Board:-

The governing board is our school's accounttable body. Our governing board has 3 core functions:

    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, and the performance management of staff; and

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


We fulfil these core functions by:

• Carrying out our statutory duties, such as safeguarding, and understanding the strategic boundaries of our role as governors.

• Reviewing and disseminating to our stakeholders our vision and ambition for the school, which will incorporate: our culture of high expectations, aspirations and excellence in academic and vocational work; and our highest expectations for social behaviour among pupils and staff, so that respect and courtesy are the norm.

• Engaging with our key stakeholders, including parents, carers and other stakeholders, including external agencies, to support all pupils.

• Contributing to and agreeing the school’s self-evaluation and understanding the school’s strengths and weaknesses, to ensure it leads to planning that secures     continual improvement.

• Ensuring the design and implementation of the curriculum has breadth and balance so that: the formal curriculum is supplemented with extra-curricular             opportunities for pupils to extend their knowledge and understanding and to improve their skills in a range of artistic, creative and sporting activities; and
  it raises awareness and keeps pupils safe from the dangers of abuse, sexual exploitation, radicalisation and extremism.

• Ensuring that the school prepares pupils positively for life in modern Britain and promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law,           individual liberty and mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

• Understanding and taking sufficient account of pupil data, particularly our understanding and use of the school data dashboard.

• Having an awareness of the impact of teaching on learning and progress in different subjects, key stages and year groups by using the data provided to track     the progress of groups of pupils to ensure that none falls behind and underachieves.

• Monitoring the effectiveness of the actions school leaders take to secure and sustain improvements to teaching, learning and assessment.

• Ensuring the effective use of additional grants, such as pupil premium and sports premium, including monitoring the impact of these grants on pupil outcomes.

• Providing support for an effective head teacher.

• Monitoring performance management systems and understanding how the school makes decisions about teachers’ salary progression, including the                   performance management of the Head Teacher, to: improve teaching, leadership and management; and ensure the school has a motivated and effective         teaching staff to deliver a high quality education for all pupils.


• Ensuring solvency and probity and that the financial resources made available to the school are managed effectively and support the school’s identified             development priorities.


• Being transparent and accountable, including in terms of the recruitment of staff, governance structures, attendance at meetings, and contact with parents and   carers.
