What do we do?

Working with the head teacher, we decide what we want Brough Primary school to achieve and set the framework to get there. In discussion with the head teacher, we set aims and objectives for the school, and agree policies, targets and priorities and then we monitor to see if these are being achieved. In essence, we are there to take the statutory decisions necessary to ensure that the school continues to improve. It is not our responsibility to manage the school or to be involved in the day to day running.

As governors we visit the school to get to know it more, and to see how the school is dealing with the issues that interest us. We work with Mrs Shepherdson in the development of the school, helping to ensure that every child reaches their potential.

How do we do this?

All the governors meet as a full governing board once a term, but a lot of our work is done through our three sub committees -Finance, Personnel and Quality and Standards-which have one or two additional meetings each term. In addition, there are also various other committees which meet to deal with specific issues such as staff appraisal or complaints. We also have named governors who have specific responsibility for scrutinising particular areas including pupil groups, Child Protection ICT.
