Governors

The role of the Governing Body


The Governing Body is accountable to all stakeholders in the school. The key players are the pupils, the staff, the parents and the local community. There are others to whom the Governing Body is accountable. These include the Local Authority (LA) and the Department for Education (DfE). The governing body is responsible for spending public money and for providing education for the pupils. It must report to those involved on the plans, the progress of the school and any other matters that are important. Some of the Governing Body's tasks are:

  • Set the vision, values and objectives for the school.
  • Meet statutory duties.
  • Consider, agree and monitor School's annual budget.

  • Develop procedures for the recruitment and selection of all school staff.

  • Determine the pay policy for the School.

  • Directly manage the Headteacher's performance.

  • Ensure the delivery of a broad and balanced curriculum in line with the national curriculum, which takes account of individual needs, and report on achievement and attainment to all stakeholders.

  • Engage with all stakeholders.

  • Celebrate success.

 

In addition to Full Governing Body meetings, there are two committees that meet termly and their remit is as follows:

  • Resources Committee - Finance, Personnel and Premises.
  • School Improvement Committee - Curriculum, Assessment and Achievement.

 

Governing Body Constitution

 

School governors represent the largest volunteer force in the country with appoximately 1% of the adult population serving in this capacity at any one time.  The governing body of Millfield has 14 governors - 5 parent, 1 Local Authority, 1 Headteacher, 1 staff and 6 Co-opted who are appointed as follows:

  • Parent governors are elected by other parents at the school.

  • Local authority governors are nominated by the local authority but appointed by the governing body.
  • The headteacher is a member of the governing body by virtue of their office.
  • Staff governors are elected by the school staff.
  • Co-opted governors are appointed by the governing body.

 

We currently have vacancies for two Co-opted governors and a Parent governor.  Please contact the Clerk to the Governing Body, via the School Office, should you require further information.

 

The Governing Body of Millfield First & Nursery School has determined that a governor's term of office is four years. 

 

Become involved as a Parent Governor

 

Parent governors are elected by their fellow parents and are vital to a governing body because they ensure that the other governors are kept in touch with the concerns and issues of most importance to our parents.  Please contact the Clerk for further information.

Please contact the Clerk to the Governing Body, via the School Office, should you require further information.
