Meet Our Governors
Who We Are
We are people who want to make a positive contribution to the education of children at Byfield School. Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards. The role of the governing body is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school.
What We Do
School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. Governors appoint the head teacher and deputy headteacher.
Each individual governor is a member of a governing board, which is established in law as a corporate body. Individual governors may not act independently of the rest of the governing board; decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing board.
The role of the governing board is a strategic one, its key functions are to:
- Set the aims and objectives for the school
- Set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
- Set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
- Monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
- Be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)
The headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing board
The Full Governing Body meets six times per year. The Headteacher's Performance Management Committee meet at least twice a year.
The minutes of governors' meetings are in the school for anyone to read, please ask the headteacher if you wish to see them.
