Who’s Who – Governors

 

All schools in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. A key role is to act as a ‘critical friend’: to support, to challenge, to ask questions, ultimately to represent the school community.

The Governing Body works in close partnership with the Equals Trust Board of Directors. Whilst the headteacher is, of course, responsible for the day to day running of the school, the governors are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance. It ensures the school functions well and holds the headteacher to account for the performance of the school.

The full Governing Body is made up of a mixture of parent, local authority, co-opted and staff governors. The Governing Body now consists of:

  • The headteacher
  • Two elected staff governors
  • Six Trust appointed governors
  • Three elected parent governors

The standard term of office for a governor is four years and the chair and vice-chair are elected annually at the first meeting of the academic year. You can contact any member of the Governing Body via the school office.
