Our Governing Body

Westerhope Primary School is a foundation trust school.

 

The governing body works to support the overall development of the pupils. All governors contribute to raising standards for all pupils. This involves providing a strategic view for the school, holding the headteacher to account and ensuring financial probity.

 

Governors are involved in:

 

  • planning the future direction of the school
  • monitoring and evaluating the progress of the school against these plans
  • supporting and challenging the school team
  • being accountable to parents and others about the school’s performance
  • ensuring all statutory duties are carried out

 

In order to carry out this work governors:

 

  • work closely with the school team
  • have six full governing body meetings a year; one in each half term.
  • work on committees to which the governing body has delegated key areas of responsibility. These meet on a regular basis – at least once each term.
  • visit the school
  • attend training
  • recognise that the headteacher is responsible for the implementation of policy, management of the school and the implementation of the curriculum
  • self-evaluate their own practices on a regular basis

 

The individual governor has a responsibility, working alongside other members of the governing body, to the staff and pupils of the school, the school’s wider community and where they are representatives, to their particular constituency (parents, staff etc).
