Structure and Remit of Governing Body and Committees
GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE ACROSS MARTENSCROFT NURSERY SCHOOL & CHILDREN’S CENTRE
The role of the governing body is strategic. The Department for Education’s Governance Handbook identifies three core functions for governing bodies:
- ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
- holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
- overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
Members of the governing body are appointed based on their skills in order to contribute to effective governance and the success of the school.
|Committee||Committee Remit||Chair’s Name|
To provide guidance and assistance to the Headteacher,
Senior Management Team and the Governing Body,
in matters relating to budgeting and finance in line with financial regulations
To consider and advise the governing body on standards and other matters
relating to the school’s curriculum, including statutory requirements
and the school’s teaching and learning policy. In respect of the Nursery
and Reception years this means the Early Years foundation stage curriculum.
To contact any member of your Governing Body, please contact the school on the main school number in the first instance.
Parent Governors are elected from within the parent body of the school when there is a vacancy. Any vacancies will be advertised on the school website.
