Why schools have Governors.

Governing bodies play three key roles – they provide a strategic overview, they act as a critical friend to the school and they ensure accountability.

By working strategically, the governing body helps to provide the best possible education for the pupils at St Louis Academy. Through working as a corporate body with a clearly defined division of responsibilities between the headteacher and the governors, the governing body:

  • Helps to set standards and targets for performance for the school.
  • Has an overview of the curriculum.
  • Helps to set policies for itself and the school.
  • Delivers effective planning including planning the delivery of financial, personnel and post-inspection duties.

By being a critical friend, the governing body establishes an effective working relationship with the headteacher, through having clear division of duties delivered through effective meetings. This will help the governing body to:

  • Know the school.
  • Have an effective scheme of delegation between the governing body and the headteacher and the governing body and its committees.
  • Monitor and evaluate attainment, achievement and the delivery of policies and plans.

To ensure accountability, the governing body will receive regular reports from the headteacher and will provide information to the LEA and the parents on a regular basis by:

  • Publishing an annual report to parents and holding an annual parents meeting.
  • Publishing a school prospectus.
  • Producing a post-inspection action plan.

Governor’s Involvement.

Each Governor takes an individual interest in particular areas of the curriculum, with the intention of developing his or her own knowledge and understanding so as to properly support staff, contribute to the development of Curriculum areas, as appropriate, and increase and enhance the effective monitoring of all aspects of school development.

Governors also take particular interest and responsibility in other dimensions of school life, such as Health and Safety, Child Protection, Governor Training, School Admissions, School Brochures, Staff Recruitment and Pay and, of course, the School Budget.

Governors visit the school on a regular basis in supportive and advisory roles. Meetings of the full Governing Body take place once a term. Working Parties and Committees meet as is necessary throughout the term.

The Governing Body of St Louis Catholic Academy has adopted the policy of paying for Governors’ expenses. This is to ensure that nobody is deterred from serving as a Governor for financial reasons.

Officers.

The Chairman of the Governing Body is Mrs Julienne Whipp and she can be contacted via the school.

The Clerk to the Governing Body is supplied by the Local Education Authority and can be contacted via the school.

The Headteacher, Mrs Teresa Selvey, is a member of the Governing Body.

Instruments of Governance.

The instrument of government is the document which records the name of the school and the constitution of its governing body. The governing body drafts the instrument and submits it to the LEA once it has to be approved by the foundation governors and the Diocese. The governing body can review and change the instrument at any time.
