Being a governor at Leven Valley Primary School|
Governors are people who have a keen interest in the school and want to help in providing the best education for the children attending the school. They represent a range of people in the community: staff, parents, church (in a CE school) and the community. They are willing to attend full governing body meetings, committee meetings and supporting staff and children in the many activities the school undertakes. They also hold the school to account making sure it manages its budget, delivers school policies and objectives and ensures children achieve the highest standards academically and personally. Responsibility is held by the whole governing body not by individuals and it is a very rewarding thing to do.
At Leven Valley we hold full governors’ meetings each half term. We have three committees: curriculum and staffing, finance and premises. Everyone serves on a committee and tries to attend full governors’ meetings. Curriculum and staffing and premises meet half termly and finance meets as necessary: at least four times a year.
Governor training is offered by the LA, the Diocese and other partner organisations. Governors are encouraged to attend training. There are also links with the local authority, the Diocese and other schools.
