Governors

Who are we?

At Moldgreen Community Primary School our Governors are people from all walks of life who have one thing in common- a commitment and passion to ensure that our school delivers a quality environment in which children can reach their full potential, educationally, socially and emotionally.  We are volunteers who represent many groups who interact and play a part in school life e.g. parents, staff, community and Local Authority.  As a team we are known as a "Governing Body" and work closely with the Head Teacher to set the goals and aims of the school.

What do we do?

Governors

As individual Governors we each have a role to play:

Parent Governor - We liaise closely with our parents to ensure that any queries or suggestions can be brought to the attention of the Head teacher and acted upon to everyone’s satisfaction.

Staff Governor - We bring specialist knowledge and skills to our role as we have insight into how pupils or staff may feel about changes or recommendations by the Governing Body.

Co-opted Governor - We provide great links to the community surrounding our school and can bring with us special expertise and an unbiased view.

Local Authority Governor - We are a representative of the Local Authority and bring an awareness and understanding to the Governing Body of County Council priorities at school level.

Governing Body

As a Governing Body we are part of the school leadership team and have many roles within our school which we carry out alongside the Headteacher

  • We challenge decisions/outcomes and are a source of support to our Headteacher where necessary.
  • We help the school to have a clear vision and ethos in our school.
  • We evaluate and monitor the performance of both pupils and staff to ensure our pupils are receiving the very best education possible. We also monitor the Headteachers ability to ensure that this is done effectively and will hold them to account if their performance is inadequate.
  • We oversee the financial performance of the school to ensure that the budget is being spent in areas where it is most effective to the needs of our school and its pupils.
  • We are involved in the appointing of senior staff and dismissal of staff.
  • We hear appeals and grievances.
  • We assist the school in forming policies for our school and monitor their effectiveness closely e.g. Pupils behaviour and discipline.
  • We ensure that our building is safe and that all Health & Safety policies are adhered to.
  • We get involved in the school community, making regular visits and helping out at discos and events.
