Governors

Role of the Governors

Being a school governor is a very rewarding job. It gives you the opportunity to have a say in the development of the school. As a governor you will also be involved and aware of the latest developments in the way that children are being educated.

There is a team of Governors at Lewis Street, including representing from teacher governors, parent governors and local education authority (LEA) governors. The term of office is 4 years, and an apply-electron process is adopted to ensure all candidates are given a fair chance.

What do governors do?

  • Promote high standards.
  • Set targets for pupil achievement.
  • Appoint the head and deputy
  • Assist with managing the school's budget.
  • Discuss current curriculum issues.
  • Have involvement in devising action plans.

How does a governing body work?

  • Closely with the headteacher.
  • Makes decisions collectively as a team.
  • Often delegates decision making to committees.
  • Conducts most of its business at meeting

 

 Governor Profiles

The different committees our Governing Body has are:

  • Achievement and Standards Committee
  • Staffing, Finance, Premises and Health & Safety Committee

There are also separate disciplinary and appeals committees which are convened if they are required.
