Horizon Learning Federation Governing Body (Federated with Holywell C of E Primary School, Somersham Primary School and St. Helens Primary School)
Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about the school’s governors and the work we do.
If you need to contact us you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or come to the school office either in person or write a letter which should be marked ‘For the attention of the Governing Body’.
Our main role is to support and challenge the head teacher and the school staff to make our school the best it can be.
We also have legal duties, which include –
· Setting strategic direction, policies and objectives for the school
· Approving the annual school budget and monitoring the school’s finances regularly
· Appointing, holding to account and supporting the head teacher
There are several types of governor, appointed by different groups that have an interest in the school. There are Community governors, Parent governors, Staff governors and Local Authority governors. All governors have equal status, however they are appointed.
Meetings and Committees
All the governors meet for a Full Governing Body meeting twice a term (about every six to eight weeks). We also currently have two main committees –
Resources Committee - Budget setting, budget management and monitoring and staffing personnel matters. Also school buildings, grounds maintenance and development.
Standards Committee - Educational performance (standards, attainment, progress and target setting) and the curriculum.
