Please find below an introduction to the Governing Body of Feckenham C of E First School and an explanation of our role.

The Governing body has responsibility for determining, monitoring and keeping under review all policies, plans and procedures that the school operates. It is accountable for the use of public funds and to conduct the school to the highest standards of educational achievement for all pupils. It holds the school to account for the education standards it achieves as well as the quality of the education it provides.

We provide a strategic view of where the school is heading, and act as a critical friend by offering support and advice to the school, its head and staff.

The Governing Body is made up of 13 members. Those being -

Headteacher (1)
Staff(1) appointed by the Staff
Foundation (3) appointed by the local Church Diocese
LA (1) appointed by the Local Authority
Parents(4) appointed by Parents
Co-opted(3) appointed by the Governing Body

All Governors are volunteers who give their time freely and are equal. Our term of office is usually 4 years. The chair and Vice Chair are appointed each year by vote at the start of the autumn term. We have enhanced CRB/DBS checks, are trained in safer recruitment in education, safeguarding children and receive regular training to cover all aspects of governance.

We meet as a full governing body twice every term and as sub committees at least once every term. They are held to establish, monitor and evaluate clear and strategic plans throughout the year that will enable our school to provide and achieve the highest standards of education for all pupils. Governor’s visit school on a regular basis and can be involved in lesson observations, book trawls and classroom activities to understand teaching methods to enable us to check pupil progress.

We aim to develop effective working relationships with the Head of the School, All staff, The Local Authority, the local community and parents.

Further regular meetings are also attended with the Local Authority, Governor Services, Association Networks and our Pyramid Schools to build, share knowledge & best practice.

We will continue to work hard to build and develop on the strong working relationship’s created to enable full and effective governance.

We will endeavour to keep you informed during the coming months of our activities and continuing work with Mrs Little, staff, the local authority, parents, carers and local community to enable our school to achieve the plans and goals set.
