Governors

What is the Governing Body?

The governing body at Broomhill First School has a range of duties and powers and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school. Its role is to promote high standards of educational achievement including setting targets for pupil achievement, managing the school's finances, making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based, appointing staff and reviewing staff performance and pay and many more.

What is a School Governor?

There are many types of Governors from different parts of the school community - parents, staff, community, local authority and church. This helps to ensure that the governing body has sufficient diversity of views and experience but does not mean that governors of a particular category "represent" that group on the governing body. For example, Parent Governors do not act as representative of the parents at school and do not report back to them.

The term of office for all governors is four years. If re-appointed or re-elected governors can serve for a further term (s).

Although it is a responsible job, you do not have to have a background in any particular area to be a valued member of the governing body team. What matters most is your commitment to improving what happens in school for the benefit of all the children. Training and support is available to help you understand and carry out the role.

On average duties take about 6 hours per month. Here at Broomhill First School we have about 2/3 meetings per term, usually after school hours but are very flexible in accommodating everyone's busy lifestyles. In order to protect the home-life balance of staff, we do try to conduct some meetings earlier in the day.
