Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

 
 

 

Each school has its own governing body. Governors have considerable responsibilities, but governors don't exercise them as individuals. They work as part of a governing body - a corporate team They do not manage the day to day operations of the school - this is the role of the Headteacher and senior leadership team.

The role of the governing body is to undertake 3 core functions;

  • Ensure clarity of visions, ethos and strategic direction
  • Hold school leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and it's pupils and the performance management of the staff
  • Oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent.

 

The governing body is made up of local authority representatives, parents,school staff and members of the community. The way a governing body is made up is set out in the school's Instrument of Government. The governing body at Shephalbury Park meets regularly and the minutes of each meeting are made available in the school office for parents who wish to see them.

Our instrument of governors are:

 

2 Parent governors

 

1 LA governor

 

2 Staff governors (including the Headteacher)

 

5 Co-opted governors

 

Total number of governors = 10

Plus as many associate governors as required, currently there are 2.

We currently have 1 vacancy for a co-opted governor
