Governing Body

In general, school governors have three main roles:

  • To provide strategic direction for the school
  • To act as a critical friend to the Headteacher
  • To ensure accountability

They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:

  • Determining how the school’s budget is spent
  • Hearing appeals and grievances
  • Setting standards for pupils’ behaviour and discipline
  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe
  • Setting and monitoring the school’s aims and policies

For further general information about the activities of School Governors and School Governing Bodies, please visit the following websites:

Denmead Infant School holds full governing body meetings (FGB) every half term as well as two committee meetings every half term. Governors will attend the FGB and also be allocated either of the committees – Standards & Curriculum or Finance & Personnel according to their skills and interests. Associate members will sit on a committee and having full voting rights unless pupil or staff specific issues are being discussed. Associate members have no voting rights at FGB but may attend.

Meeting minutes are published on the school website once they are formally agreed at the next meeting.
