The role of School Governor is a challenging and rewarding one, striving to provide the best educational opportunities for all the children who attend our school, working in partnership between parents, teachers and governors.  The Governing Body is made up from nominees of the local parishes of Bobbingworth, Moreton and Stanford Rivers, the Local Education Authority, elected representatives from the parents, elected representatives from both the teaching and non-teaching staff and co-opted governors, all serving a four-year term.  The school is voluntarily aided by the Church of England and therefore the majority of governors must, by law, be appointed by the Church.  The Headteacher is also always a school governor.  

We have a statutory obligation to hold the Headteacher and the school management team to account.  We must ensure that all relevant policies are up to date, fit for purpose and adhered to.  We agree the annual budget and monitor income and expenditure throughout the year.  We agree the School Improvement Plan and the Progress and Attainment targets for the pupils and monitor and review results regularly.  Everything we do must have one, primary consideration – how does this affect the pupils and improve education?

There is a lot to do but we do not run the school on a day-to-day basis – Nikki Batt, the Headteacher, does that.  We commit time, not only to attend committee meetings and training courses but also to read, review and prepare policies and other documents and be involved in discussions and decisions as they arise as well as visiting the school to carry out monitoring visits.
