Park Spring School Governors


The School Governing Body consists of:


  • The Headteacher
  • Co-opted staff and community members
  • A Local authority representative
  • Representatives from Parents


The Headteacher is responsible for the day-to-day leadership and management of the school.


The role of the Governing Body is to provide strategic direction and act as a “critical friend,” supporting the work of the headteacher and other staff.


Park Spring Primary has a delegated budget to cover salaries, running costs, maintenance and equipment; the Governing Body is responsible for managing this budget.


Governors must also appoint the Head and are involved in the appointment of other staff and also have a role in monitoring the school’s progress. Governors also take responsibility for a specific subject area and undertake class visits.


At Park Spring, the Full Governing Body meets four times a year and the Headteacher provides a report for three of the termly meetings.


This report discusses:-


  • Achievements and Standards
  • School Improvement Plan
  • Staffing
  • Pupils
  • Parents and the Community
  • Leadership and Management
  • Premises and Resources
  • Finance


There are three committees which discuss in detail the points raised in the reports and a strategic committee which plans the way forward for the governing body:-


  • Resources and Building
  • Pupil Support
  • Teaching and Learning


There is  a Performance Management Sub-Committee which reviews the Headteacher’s performance annually.
