All governors have a very important and essential role to play. 

The role of the Governing Body is to:

  • Provide the long-term strategic direction to how the school is managed;
  • Act as a "critical friend", supporting the work of the Head Teacher and all staff;
  • Ensure the school is accountable for its actions.

Governors discuss and have input on:

  • School policies, such as discipline, dress, sport, bullying and homework;

  • Long term plans and the future of the school;
  • How the school budget will be spent;
  • How the school will try to reach performance targets;
  • Appointment and dismissal of staff;
  • Complaints from pupils, staff and parents;
  • Repair and maintenance of school buildings;
  • Use of school premises outside school hours.

To undertake the above duties, the governing body have appointed sub-committees of governors to look at specific issues. These two sub-committees are known as The Finance and Staffing and The Curriculum and Performance.

It is the responsibility of Governors to appoint the Head Teacher, and also oversee the appointment of other teaching staff.

The school is committed, having due regard to applicable law, and to best practice and the need for appropriate skills and experience, to ensure that the governing board membership should reflect the diverse nature of Wingrove Primary School and the wider community.
