Meet the Governors

 

The governing body at Queensway is made up of volunteers who come together to work in partnership with staff and parents in the best interests of the children.

The Governors, together with the Head Teacher, are responsible for the strategic direction of the school whilst the Head Teacher is responsible for the day-to-day running of the school and is accountable to the Governors.

The governing body meets six times a year has three core functions:

Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

Holding leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff

Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent

Governors are committed to make sure that Safeguarding is effective and that all children feel safe at school.

Our Governing body is organised into two subcommittees that focus on specific areas of the school:

Pupil Outcomes Committee

The main function of this committee is to challenge achievement levels in the school.  We receive reports from school leaders about the progress and attainment of the children and we monitor the impact on children’s learning of special funding such as SEND funding and Pupil Premium funding. We look in depth at the curriculum that is taught in school and the quality of teaching the children receive.

Resources Committee

This committee oversees the financial management of the school, looking at all issues related to the premises and health and safety at the school.  We work closely with the Head Teacher and the School Business Manager to ensure we spend our budget wisely and with the most impact on the children's learning.  The Resources committee also scrutinises personnel issues and considers what the best staffing structure for the school is.

In addition to these committees, we also have a Head Teacher Performance Review Committee that meets three times a year and a Pay Committee that meets when required.

Governors are happy to be approached at any time and are usually present at school events. Alternatively, they can be contacted by letter if preferred. Appointments can be made to meet them too.  Agendas and Minutes from Governor meetings are available to view upon request by contacting the school office. Governors are always willing to listen to any views, suggestions or concerns that are brought to them.
