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 as a full board 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 (F&GP) considers issues relating to finance, personnel, health and safety, the school premises, and resources in general. It also acts as the Pay Review Committee, dealing with all pay and performance matters relating to staff, and implementing the approved pay policy.
Both committees meet approx. three times a year and report back to the full governing body.
A small group of governors oversee the Headteacher's performance management, guided by an external consultant. 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.
