Broomfield Primary School

Governors

The Governing Body is the key strategic decision-making body in the school whose responsibility it is to set the strategic framework and ensure the school meets all its statutory duties and responsibilities. Raising achievement is at the heart of the Governing Body’s strategy to ensure that every child receives the best possible education.   

 

The Governing Body has the following core strategic functions:  

 Establishes the strategic direction by: 

  • setting the vision, values, and objectives for the school 
  • agreeing the school improvement strategy with priorities and targets 
  • meeting statutory duties 
     

 Ensures accountability by:  

  • appointing the headteacher 
  • monitoring progress towards targets 
  • performance managing the headteacher 
  • engaging and consulting with stakeholders  
  • contributing to school self-evaluation 
     

 Ensuring financial probity by:  

  • setting the budget 
  • monitoring spending against the budget 
  • ensuring value for money is obtained 
  • ensuring risks to the organisation are managed 

 

The Governing Body devolves some of its work to the Operations Working Group. All key decisions are ratified by the Full Governing Body (FGB).

In addition, small specialists groups are formed to assess Headteacher performance, complaints, SEN and safeguarding, health and safety and exclusions.
