Governor Responsibilites and Terms of Office
Terms of Reference
Croftlands Infant and Nursery School Instrument of Governance states we require:
1 Head Teacher- ex-officio
1 Staff Governor- elected by staff
1 Local Authority Governor- appointed by the governing body
3 Parent Governor- elected by parents
7 Co-opted Governor- appointed by the governing body
The Governing Body has the power to delegate certain of its duties to appointed committees. The structure and membership of these committees is agreed by the Governing Body.
The committees are responsible for doing the majority of the leg-work of the Governing body. Each committee is run by a Chair and the Headteacher sits on each of the committees.
Meetings are minuted so that their business and any decisions reached can be fed back in detail to the following meeting of the Full Governing Body. Committee meetings are quorate when three governors (which can include the Headteacher) are in attendance. Minutes of Governing Body meetings are available to view in the school office.
Currently our governing body meets in full once a term.
Our Chair of Governors is Ms Melissa Thompson-Craig. Our Vice Chair of Governors is Mr Mark Stephens. Both are contactable by writing to them at school or phoning the office to leave a message.
These committees are as follows:
|Premises, Health and Safety||
|Finance, Personnel and Admin||
Sian Taylor- Clerk to the Governors
Vacancy - Co-opted
Vacancy - Local Authority
What the Governors do?
The term of office for governors is four years.
Effective work is being done by the governing body. Our Governors act as critical friends and hold senior leaders to account for all aspects of the school?s performance.
This is done by regularly observing lessons and working with staff at our Education, Finance and Premises committee meetings.
All leaders and managers, including the governing body, are highly ambitious for the school and lead by example.
