The Governing Body

The Governing Body

The Governing Body for Breckon Hill is a very hard working and committed group of people who give their time voluntarily to oversee the management of the school and to ensure that an excellent quality of education is provided for our children. Governor term of office is four years.  The governors meet regularly throughout the year and are made up of a range of representatives from the local community.  We are fortunate to have a very strong skill set among our governors including serving headteachers, retired Local Authority advisers, a local Councillor, local business leades, univerity lecturer and a student social worker. The Governing Body is accountable for the school’s performance and takes a key and active role in shaping the school’s future.

All boards, no matter what type of schools or how many schools they govern, have 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; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

Governance Structure

The Governing Body meets as a whole once a term to consider the work of the school which is discussed through focused meetings and events with governors throughout the year, to fulfil statutory duties related to policies and procedures and to work together in forward planning for the school.   The governors visit school often.

Governor Visits Policy

The Finance and Resource Committee meet once a term.

Governors are very active and their visits to school are recorded and discussed at the FGB each term. These visits provide increased opportunity to ensure that the core governors’ functions are authentic.

All governors are given opportunities to learn about curriculum development and raising acheivement at the full governing body termly meetings.
