Welcome to our governors page.
The Board of Governors at Leedon is made up of representatives from the local authority, parents, staff and the local community. The governors are all volunteers and meet approximately five times a year.
The governors have three core functions:
As well as meeting regularly, governors visit the school throughout the year to talk to pupils, staff and parents. This helps them monitor and evaluate what is happening in the school, as well as understanding future development goals.
In addition to full governors meetings, there are two sub-committees.
The Standards committee monitors progress, assessment and achievement throughout the school, as well as ensuring that the special educational needs of children are met.
The Finance & General Purposes committee considers issues relating to finance, personnel and pay, health and safety, the school premises, and resources in general.
Both committees report back regularly to the full governing body.
In addition, many of the governors are linked to an individual subject or area of school life. They focus on finding out more about these areas throughout the year, and again report back their learnings to the full governing body.
Applications for governors are welcomed from all members of the community. Elections are held when vacancies arise, with details advertised across the school.
If you’d like to enquire about being a governor at Leedon please leave a message, with your contact details, at the school office.
If you’d like to contact the governors please ask at the school office, who will be happy to forward on your query.
