School Governors

Each school in the state system has a Governing Body.  The Governing Body at St Bartholomew's plays a key role in helping oversee the strategic direction of the school and works in partnership with the Head teacher and her Senior Leadership Team.  The main aim of a Governing Body is to ensure the delivery of a high standard of education for all the pupils in its care.  'Our' governors have an excellent knowledge of the school  before and after school.  As members of the local community they are ambitious for all the children within the school and take their responsibility for the strategic direction of the school very seriously.

 What do the governors do?

 The governing body has 3 main roles:

  1.  To provide a strategic view of where the school is heading. This is achieved by approving plans and policies written by the Head, and discussing how best to use resources.

  2. To act as a critical friend and to challenge the school leadership

  3. To ensure that the school is accountable to the children and parents it serves, to its local community and to the staff it employs.

The governing body meets in full once each term. The members are shared between five sub committees, these are Achievements and Standards, Finance, Premises, Staffing and Pastoral; these committees also meet once each term. Governors also work with the head teacher to write draft policy documents and analyse statistics from national test results.

The governing body will seek the views of staff, parents and children on certain issues e.g. school meal provision, through the use of questionnaires. These views are valued and help the governors to formulate plans for the future of the school.

To keep their knowledge and skills up to scratch governors attend at least 2 to 3 training sessions each year. These take place in the evening or at the weekend.

What do the governors not do?

The Head is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school.
