Governors At Springhead Primary School

All schools are required by law to form a Governing Body.

All governance boards have three core functions

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent

 At Springhead we have a supportive and active Governing Body that provide and use their expertise to help and manage the school.  The Chair of Governors can be contacted through the school office.

How do governors carry out their roles at Springhead?

  • The full board of governors hold two evening meetings each term. At these meetings governors cover a wide number of areas including,
  1.  Hearing reports from the head and staff
  2.  Reflecting on the work of the school and progress of all the groups of pupils
  3.  Discussing the curriculum opportunities provided for pupils
  4. Agreeing school development plans
  5. Identifying a school vision and evaluating progress towards achieving it.

At Springhead Primary we value the experience that Governors bring to the life of the school and Governors visits are always welcomed. 

Governors may also be subject link governors or class link governors.  The Governors are not expected to be experts in their link areas but to take an active interest and keep themselves informed.
