Introduction to the Bredon Hancock's School Governors

 

What is a governor?

 

Governors are volunteers who come from different backgrounds, reflecting the many interests of groups involved in our school, but they have one important thing in common; they are dedicated to ensuring that the children in their school have the best education possible. This must be the primary focus of all governing body business.

 

Effective governance is about teamwork with the Head Teacher, staff, governors and the community.

Governors have a vital role to play in bringing individual experiences to bear on the role of being a School Governor. School governance is a team effort and decisions are made corporately; individual governors do not act on their own.

 

Governing bodies have many responsibilities but in general are there to set the policy framework for the school and to monitor the implementation of policies as managed and carried out by the Head Teacher and staff.

 

Our key roles as governors are to: 

- Bring a strategic view

- Be a critical friend 

- Ensure accountability

 

Who are the governors? 

 

The school Instrument of Government sets out the make up of the governing body. It's made up of a maximum of 16 members to ensure a broad representation of the school community.

Our current governors are:

- Elected Parent governors: Sarah Knight, Beth Warren

- LEA governor: Colin March

- Staff governors: Melanie Millar (Head teacher), James Dennis

- Foundation governors:  Martin Davies, Jo Wenham,  Lindsay Barton, Rob Ralph, Sherif Loutfy

- Sponsor Governor: Peter Whitehead (Chair)

- Co-opted Gov: Gemma Greenwood

For more details about each of the governors and what they do please have a look at our 'Governor Spotlights' below!  

 

What do the governors do?

 

As a body we support, challenge and monitor what's happening in the school. We meet regularly as a full governing body and also as smaller groups who have responsibility for specific areas - finance, premises, curriculum & standards and personnel.

Minutes of full meetings are available from the school office, please ask Miss Davies.

 

How do you find out more?

If you have any questions or would like any more information please contact the any of the governors or the Clerk, John Ling, via the school office.
