Like all schools, a Board of Governors oversees life at West Green Primary. The Governing Body has wide-ranging responsibilities and powers and works with the Headteacher and staff to:
Agree the aims and values of the school
Make decisions on the budget and approve School Development Plans
Ensure that the National Curriculum is taught
Monitor and review the school’s progress
Ensure that individual pupil’s needs are met, including special needs
Be involved in the recruitment of staff
Provide information about school for parents
Produce action plans following Inspection
Establish and maintain positive links with the local community
The Governors meet twice a term as a full body and each governor also sits on one of two subcommittees, which also meet once a term. The two subcommittees are:
Finance- responsible for the financial & physical resources of the school.
Standards - responsible for staff selection, school policyand ensuring that the National Curriculum is taught in the school.
In addition, some governors have particular responsibilities for overseeing certain aspects of the school’s work, for example, special educational needs or health & safety. The governors subscribe to and attend the LA’s training programme designed for them.
The size and composition of the Governing Body is laid down by law and Governors are appointed or elected by specific bodies or groups, but Governors are not delegates who must vote according to the wishes of those groups. The groups are: Parent governors, Staff governors, LA governors, and Co-opted governors.
