2017-18 Academic Year
Our membership is made up of parents, staff, members of the local community and governors nominated by the Local Authority. Current members are listed below.
Governors work with the Senior Leadership Team at the school to promote continuous improvement in the education provided for all the pupils attending our school. The role of the Governing Board is a strategic one and we work together to make decisions on the overall direction of the school and set policies, targets, development plans and more. We also decide on how to make the best use of the school budget for the benefit of pupils’ education.
- Our key functions are to:
- set the aims and objectives for the school
- set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
- set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
- monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
- be a source of support to the head teacher, but also willing to challenge (a critical friend)
All Governors have signed up to the Birmingham City Council Code of Conduct for Governors which sets out in detail the purpose of the governing body and how we will conduct ourselves as Governors. This document can be found here.
We endeavour to keep everyone up to date with the work of the Governing Board through the regular school newsletters and copies of the approved minutes of our Full Governing Body meetings are always available on request from the School Office.
If you would like to know more about the Governing Board or may be interested in becoming a Governor please don’t hesitate to get in touch through the school office. Details can be found on our Contact Us page.
