Governor Information 2016/17

School Governors

The Governing Body of Lander Road Primary School plays a crucial role in the life and work of our school. It is made up of 11 volunteers from the local and wider community, plus the Headteacher and a member of staff. The role of the Governing Body is defined in its constitution.

Governors undertake their roles and responsibilities through committees. There are five committees. They are:

  • Full Governing Body which meets normally 5 times a year
  • Standards and Quality
  • Finance and Environment
  • Inclusion and Safeguarding
  • Pay and Performance

In addition, we have an Equality & Diversity Working Group which is currently developing an Action Plan and key priorities.

We have ‘lead governors’ who undertake specific monitoring roles in such areas as ‘Safeguarding’, ‘Pupil Premium’, ‘Sport and PE’, Special Educational Needs and Disability’

Governors also undertake ‘learning walks’ in which a group of governors will undertake a visit to school with a specific focus eg how the school assess pupils progress.

The main work of the governing body is outlined below:

  • Setting and reviewing the schools aims and policies
  • Taking the lead on the  Head teacher performance management and monitoring of staff appraisal
  • Monitoring the well-being of pupils
  • Continuing to improve the standards of teaching and pupil achievement
  • Setting the school’s budget and monitoring expenditure
  • Interview and appointing teachers and support staff
  • Acting as a link between the local community and the school
  • Dealing with complaints about the school
  • Drawing up an action plan after inspection and monitoring the success of the plan

This doesn’t mean that we manage the school. Professionals are employed to do this. Governors provide support and challenge and hold the school to account. As Governors this means that we also have the responsibility to act in a certain way and this is outlined in our Code of Conduct.

You can find out what we have been doing by looking at our updates page along with further information on governing teams, roles, biographies info and links.
