Roxbourne Primary School

The Governing Body

The Governing Body 2018/2019

The governors are the strategic leaders of schools and they have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. The Governing Body is the school’s key strategic decision making body. It has a collective, legal responsibility for the effective management of the school, acting within a framework established by national legislation and the school’s agreed policies, and ensuring all statutory duties are met.

Governors are volunteers who bring knowledge, skills and different perspectives from their work and life experiences. They are not paid for their work. Many of them have full time jobs and all have other commitments. They sometimes take time off from their work to visit the school or to attend meetings.

Governors are not expected to take detailed decisions about the day to day running of the school. That is the responsibility of the headteacher – although the headteacher will discuss most aspects of school life with the governors. The partnership between the headteacher, staff, governors, parents, pupils and the wider community determines how well the school functions.

  • Holds at least one full Governing Body meeting each term and minutes are available from the School Office.
  • Governors are also members of smaller committees -  Achievement and Curriculum, Resources – which meet at least once each term and report back to the Governing Body.
  • Governors have their own area of responsibility and liaise regularly with the relevant teachers.
  • Governors visit and participate in school activities.

We work hard to ensure the school provides the best possible education for our pupils by: 

  1. Setting the school’s vision and strategic aims and agreeing plans and policies.
  2. Making creative use of the school’s resources
  3. Monitoring and evaluating performance.
  4. Acting as a critical friend to the Headteacher and the school.
  5. Supporting and challenging the Headteacher in managing the school.
  6. Ensuring the school is accountable to the children and parents, local community, the LA and the staff.

If you are interested in becoming a governor please ask for more details at the School Office.
