The board of the Village Schools Federation believe it is important that they reflect the diversity of the community they serve. We are always seeking opportunities to expand our board to ensure it reflects a diverse range of perspectives and to support inclusive decision making. We encourage anyone who would be interested in being a governor to contact the school. You don't have to have, or to have had children at the school to be a governor.
We are currently working together as a board to collect our diversity data.
A school governor is a member of a school's governing body, which is made up of volunteers. Governors work with the Executive Headteacher and staff to help raise standards of achievement, and ensure the schools are well run. They help the Federation agree and maintain standards by setting, monitoring and reaching targets.
A governing body's main duties include:
- accountability for the performance of the school
- setting strategic direction, policies and objectives
- planning the school's future direction
- approving the school budgets
- appointing, challenging and supporting the Executive Headteacher
- making decisions about the school's budget and staffing
- making sure a broad range of subjects is taught, that meet Government requirements
- ensuring that the school provides for pupils
The Village Schools Federation Governing Board meet at-least once per term to review the current status of the school, and the sub committees meet at least once per term.
If you are interested in joining the Governing body, please contact the Chair of Governors via the School Office.
