Wath Victoria Primary School Governing Body
On behalf of the Governing Body, I welcome this opportunity to briefly introduce you to the work the Governors undertake to ensure that your child(ren) will receive a sound primary school education.
The Governing Body has a range of powers and duties laid down by various Education Acts. In the main, these responsibilities relate to:
Setting targets and promoting high standards of educational achievement
Setting the strategic framework within which the school operates
Management of the school’s delegated budget
Ensuring that the curriculum for the school is balanced and broadly based
Supporting the school to ensure rigorous safeguarding procedures are in place.
Governors discharge the above responsibilities, together with many others, through five Governing Body meeting each year. A number of governors also have responsibilities for specific areas of school such as safeguarding, curriculum, SEND, inclusion and finance.
Governors adopt, review and monitor a range of policies that govern the operation of the school including Health and Safety, Behaviour, Curriculum and Performance Management.
Wath Victoria fosters an atmosphere where staff, pupils, parents and governors work together to ensure that all our pupils have the opportunity to develop to their full potential. The Governing Body is, therefore, rightly proud of the achievements of its pupils and staff, and also of the solid foundations it provides in preparing all our pupils for the remainder of their formative education and life beyond school.
