Meet the Governors

The Role of the Governing body

 

The governors act as a "critical friend" to the school, monitoring and overseeing the smooth running of the school and supporting and listening to staff and parents. The governing body is responsible for the strategic management of the school and for determining its aims, objectives and policies in accordance with all the relevant legislation. 

 

The head manages the school from day to day and is the governing body’s principal professional adviser who assists it with the formulation and implementation of its aims, objectives, policies and plans.

 

School governors help schools provide the best possible education for their pupils:

 

  • thinking and working strategically to help raise standards;

  • monitoring and evaluating progress towards the school's priorities and targets;

  • supporting the head and staff as well as challenging their expectations;

  • accounting to all stakeholders for the school's overall performance and for the decisions they have made

 

The Governing Body is part of the leadership team of Binley Woods Primary School and is made up of interested and committed volunteers who challenge and support the school in its work.  The governors produce a twice yearly newsletter for parents, and attend a range of events at which you can meet them such as parents consultation evenings (Termly Learning Conferences) and parent partnership evenings (Information Evenings). 


Governors meet every term and are currently trialling a different system of governance which will be reviewed in April 2018.  Instead of having two sub committees that report to the Full Governing Body ( the more usual format for governance), they meet more frequently as a whole committee and carry out their work together.  By meeting together every month expertise is pooled and developed as a group and this builds capacity and knowledge across the body.  Governors with identified expertise work in workshop groups, attend finance meetings, attend curriculum team meetings and safeguarding/SEND meetings, so that they can both support and challenge the Headteacher and other school leaders in their work.  Full Governors meetings monitor the curriculum, quality of teaching and learning and standards.  They also monitors the school's budget and financial processes as well as the premises and health and safety, and also review policy.  Woodlands Pre-School Committee monitors the finances and long term viability of Woodlands Pre-school along with the quality of the early years provision.
