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 and parent partnership evenings. 
Governors carry out their work through three committees.  The Quality and Standards Committee monitors the curriculum, quality of teaching and learning and standards.  The Resources Committee monitors the school's budget and financial processes as well as the premises and health and safety.  Woodlands Pre-School Committee monitors the finances of the pre-school along with the quality of the early years provision.
The three committees undertake their work which also includes policy review and report to the Full Governing Body every half term.
