Wilbury Primary School Governors

Govenors

The primary function of the Governors is to support the school in driving improvement and ensure the best possible outcomes for all the children. Being a governor is rewarding and it is a privilege. Effective school governance is achieved by knowing the school, the children, the parents, the staff and the community and understanding our roles and responsibilities.

The Governing body is made up of a committed, balanced mix of people with a variety of appropriate skills.  The body includes the Headteacher, parents, teachers, staff, Local Authority representatives and co-opted members of the wider community. With the exception of the Headteacher , all governors  are elected every four years.

The role of the governing body is to:

Finance and Premises Committee – Chair: Leon Levy  The role of this committee is to scrutinise the finances of the school and ensure that the school complies with statutory legislation in this area. Expenditure is compared against budgets and school budgets approved for the next three years. In addition, the committee monitors health and safety issues, major expenditure projects and ongoing work carried out relating to the premises.

Curriculum and Standards Committee – Chair: Marilyn Stein  This committee is responsible for monitoring standards in teaching and learning across the school.   It ensures that the curriculum is balanced and reflects current guidelines.

Staffing Committee – Chair: Patricia Hanton  This committee is responsible for ensuring staffing issues are dealt with effectively, including recruitment, appraisal, pay, staff development and capability.
It’s not just about meetings!!
