Malmesbury Primary School Brings Out The Best In Everyone

Governance

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Governance at Malmesbury

 

Governors work in partnership with the Headteacher and staff to promote high standards of educational achievement and to drive the strategic direction of the school. The Governing Body is made up of parent, staff, community and local authority representatives.

 

The Governing Body meets regularly to review the activities of the school and to consult and decide on its future direction. The Governing Body's responsibilities include:

 

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the

    organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its

    money is well spent

(Governance Handbook, January 2017)

 

In addition to the full Governing Body meetings the Governing Body delegates certain responsibilities and more detailed discussion to its three committees: Resources, Community and Standards. The responsibilities of each committee are set out in the Terms of Reference which are available below.

 

Minutes of the Governing Body meetings are in the school office and paper copies can be made available on request. Minutes of the current academic year's Full Governing Body meetings are available below.

 

Membership of the school's Governing Body is set out in the table below:
