Governors

 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.
