Governors

KEY PURPOSE OF THE GOVERNING BODY

The key purpose of the Governing Body is to help the school to provide the best possible
education for its pupils.
Our governing body is made up of volunteers from the school community – parents and
staff – and the wider community. We are responsible for ensuring that the school meets its
statutory obligations; planning the future direction of the school; supporting and
challenging the school leadership to improve outcomes for all pupils; monitoring the schools
performance; driving improvements and managing the school’s budget. We are also
responsible for the appointment and performance management of the Head teacher and for
ensuring that the school is accountable to pupils, parents and carers, the local community,
the school staff and the Local Authority.
Individual Governors are expected to:
Commit time to the duties and responsibilities of being a governor.
Attend meetings regularly.
Work as a member of the governing body for the best interests of the school.
Undertake training.
Support school activities
Communicate with parents and carers and the local community.
Promote the school within the community.
At Burnt Tree the Governing Body meets once every half term. In order to work more
effectively some aspects of our work are delegated to committees e.g. Finance and Staffing;
Curriculum and Standards and Health and Safety.
As governors we also undertake focused visits to the school to assist us in understanding the
work of the school more fully. e.g. Attending a phonics session in KS1 or a Big Write lesson
in KS2. We also take part in Learning Walks and Pupil Conferencing and attend school fairs,
concerts and other social occasions.
Members of the Governing Body at Burnt Tree include the Head teacher, members of the
school staff, parents, community representatives and Local Authority representatives.
Below is a list of Governors and their responsibilities. If you wish to contact the Chair of
Governors or any member of the Governing Body please do so through the school office.
Any concerns related to the day to day management of the school including teaching and
learning and pupil discipline must always be referred directly to the Head teacher.
