At Thursby School, we have a full governing body which is then divided into two sub committees. Whilst each committee has set areas of school to focus on our governors are supported to gain the bigger picture of school through reading minutes of each committee and monitoring school aspects.
The 3 roles of governors at Thursby School:
Role 1: ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
Role 2: holding the head to account for the performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance of staff.
Role 3: overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure that its money is well spent. May also reference securing safeguarding / Prevent agenda.
Also, specific tasks that support Rs 1,2,3 – appointing the HT, supporting his/her well-being, attending meetings and undertaking training.
