Governance

Stanley Primary School Governing Body

 

The governing body members are appointed for a term of 4 years. The full governing body meets every term and observers are welcome to attend meetings (by arrangement with the Chair of Governors) but may be asked to leave if confidential matters are being discussed.

 

The role of the governing body is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • Set the vision and strategic direction for Stanley Primary School

  • Hold the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

  • Ensure financial resources are spent well

     

Governors work in partnership with the Headteacher and the senior leadership of the school, acting as ‘critical friends’ who both support and challenge. Governors do not get involved in the day to day operations of the school, although there are some statutory responsibilities set out in The School Governance Regulations 2013 and The Governance Handbook for academies, multi-academy trusts and maintained schools (March 2019).

Much of governors’ work is done through sub-committees, to whom responsibilities are delegated to ensure the work the school does will deliver the strategic objectives set, and to benchmark the school’s performance against external comparators.

.

The A&C (Achievement & Curriculum) Committee monitors the attainment and progress of all pupils (reviewing information for key groups, rather than individual children). The effectiveness of the school’s curriculum offer is monitored both by the committee and link governors.

The HR Committee supports the Headteacher and senior leadership team in their management of staffing strategy.

The Resources Committee oversees the setting and management of the school budget and ensures the school meets its health and safety and accessibility responsibilities.

The PPC Committee (Parents, Pupils & Community) looks at how the school communicates with and responds to the needs of the pupils, parents and the wider community.

 

Governors report on how our responsibilities have been fulfilled through termly newsletters, and the publication of minutes of Full Governing Body meetings.

 

Parent Governor Elections

Parent Governor elections take place periodically.  Parent governors are elected for a four year term and there are always three parent governors serving on the board at any time.  Stanley supports the Everyone on Board campaign (Campaigns | Everyone on Board - National Governance Association (nga.org.uk)) aiming to increase the participation of people from ethnic minorities and young people in school governance.
