The Governing Body works by:

Working with the Headteacher, the Governing Body:

  • 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;
  • are a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend);
  • meet once every half term to discuss their monitoring of the school.

Governors don’t need to be experts on education but they do need to be committed to making all discussion, scrutiny and decision making focussed on the best interests of children, and be relentless in their determination to make the school vision a reality for all pupils.  They do need to be able to get on with people and to be able to work as part of a team, but also be able ask the difficult questions when it’s necessary – and sometimes the easy questions too, like ‘why do we do it like that?’

Governors, as volunteers, also need to be able to make time to come into school occasionally during the school day for purposeful visits, and to attend and contribute to evening meetings regularly – at least  two  meetings a term usually. It is also an expectation governors will undertake relevant training, which may be on line or face to face, and keep abreast  of educational developments as they effect the school.

 

Governing Body Committees


Ladybridge has two full governing Body meetings each half term, one with a focus on teaching and learning and one with a focus on Resources. One Co-Headteacher presents a full report at each of the meetings and questions and challenge is expected as part of the role of the Governing Body as well as support for the school.
