Bailey's Court Primary School

Governors

Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about the school’s governors, and the work that we do.

We have a dedicated team of governors at Bailey’s Court who work with the Headteacher to decide upon the strategic direction of the school, monitor and review the school development plan and ensure that all of our children receive an excellent all-round education.

Our legal duties include:-

· setting strategic direction, policies and objectives

· approving the school budget

· reviewing progress against the school's budget and objectives

· appointing, challenging and supporting the Headteacher

The Governing Body meets at least once every term. We have two subcommittees to look at particular issues (Staffing & Curriculum and Finance & Resources) that also meet once a term.

There are several categories of governor, appointed by different groups that have an interest in the school. These are Community governors, the Local Authority, Parents, and Staff. All governors have equal status, however they are appointed.

We are committed to providing an excellent environment for all pupils to enjoy during their time at our school.

Our Governing Body meetings are usually held between 5:00p.m.-7:30 p.m. We attend training sessions and seminars to help us keep up to date with changes in schools and education and to help us do our job effectively. We also go into school to meet with the Headteacher, other members of staff and pupils to help us find out how the school is progressing towards its targets.
