St John's Mead School Governors

 

The governing body provides strategic management to the school through challenge and support, ensuring the school is accountable for its actions. It is made up of parents, school staff and other people from the local community working in partnership with the school to ensure that the school achieves it aims and is supported correctly to do this.

 

Specific responsibilities include:

 

  • Working together with the head teacher to set the future direction for the school and decide how the school's budget should be spent.
  • Making decisions collectively on matters such as performance targets, school policies and the School's Improvement Plan.
  • Reviewing progress against the School Improvement Plan and the school's budget and objectives.  Monitoring the impact that the school's policies have on pupil outcomes.
  • Acting as a link between parents and the school and reporting to parents on the school's achievements.

School governors lead schools, they don't manage them. The day to day management of the school is the responsibility of the head teacher.

 

The chair or clerk to the governors can be contacted through the school office.

Becoming a Parent Governor

 

From time to time, parent governors step down from their position which leaves opportunities for other parents to take up the role of a parent governor.

 

When such positions become available the school will send out election forms to parents allowing candidates to be proposed.

 

The governors have a wide range of responsibilities some of which are set out in the Governor summary. The role requires commitment , attending regular meetings and undertaking some work outside the meetings to support the school. However, it is an extremely satisfying and important role.

 

If you are interested in becoming a parent governor, please feel free to approach members of the governing body or you can contact the South Gloucestershire Governor Development Team on 01454 863182.
