Governance and Accounts Information

Picture 1

All schools in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. Key parts of the role are to support, to challenge, to ask questions, and ultimately to represent the school community.

 

The Governing Body works in close partnership with the Headteacher, staff and the Local Authority. Whilst the Headteacher is, of course, responsible for the day to day running of the school, the governors are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance. It ensures the school functions well and maintains the proper range of academic and social objectives.

 

Membership of the Governing Body includes parents, teaching staff and representatives from the local community. The Governing Body meets twice each term with additional sub-committees meeting regularly which focus on: Resources, Finance, Performance Management and Data.

The different categories of governors on our governing body are:

  • parent governors who have a child in school at the time of their election, and are elected by the parents with children at the school (up to 2);
  • a staff governor who are members of staff at the school and are elected by their colleagues (1 person);
  • co-opted governors are appointed on to the governing body by the other members because they come from a specialist group, such as the business community or because they possess a particular skill which can contribute to the effective governance and success of the school (up to 5);
  • a local authority(LA) governor who are nominated by the local councillor and appointed by the governing body (1 person);
  • the Headteacher (HT) is also a member of the governing body by right of the position they hold in the school;
  • associate members are not actually governors but can be appointed to serve on committees and attend meetings of the full governing body. They do not have the right to vote at meetings of the full governing body but may been given voting rights on the committees that they are a member of, but these rights can only be given by the governing body. 

Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests

All the governors and associate members of Grove Lea Primary School listed below have signed the Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests

 

This is a declaration of any personal or business interest they or any relative or person closely connected with them, have with businesses or other organisations that may have dealings with the school. This could for example include owning or having a relative work for a business that had dealings with school; having a relative working in or for school or being a governor of another school. 

If any interest a governor has could be seen to cause a conflict of interest they would be asked to withdraw from any decision making concerned. This is to ensure that our governors can always be seen to be putting the interest of the school first.
