Headfield CE Junior School

Governing body

School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children's education.

Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards.

The role of the governing body is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school. Governors are supported by the Local Authority who provides information and regular training.

The governing body's responsibilities are to:

  • Ensure high standards of achievement for all children and young people in the school.
  • Help set the school's vision and aims.
  • Review and agree policies that the school has written
  • Help the school make good use of resources.
  • Monitor the school's performance.
  • Provide support and challenge to the Headteacher in managing the school.

Governors can be contacted via the school office.

Full governing body meetings at Headfield are held once every half term as are Finance Committee meetings and Standards and Pupils Committee meetings.

I'm currently in my 17th year of teaching and have worked at Headfield since 2004, spending the vast majority of my time working in upper Key Stage 2. As part of the senior leadership team I wanted to become more involved in the wider life of the school by becoming a staff governor.
