Who is Who
The governors play a central role in the management of the school and have a close working relationship with the Headteacher in the running of the school. Although each governor has their own role to play, we all work as a team and have a collective responsibility for the decisions that are made about the school.
At Harnham Infant School the governors are always available to listen to you - the parents and your child.
Who are we:
Clerk to the Governors
Chair of Governors
Vice Chair of Governors
Full Governing Body Attendance 2017-18
Register of Interests 2017-18
What do we do?
While we work as a team, we also are divided into smaller sub-committees to deal with specific areas of school management. These include:
•Finance - managing the school budget.
•Staffing/Appointments - checking staff employment policies, appointment/dismissal of staff.
•Curriculum - monitor that the National Curriculum is being taught and its assessment procedures carried out, including Special Educational Needs and Pupil Premium.
•Welfare - including monitoring safeguarding, well-being and attendance.
•Health & Safety - including 6 monthly premises inspection, ensure health and safety and security procedures are observed.
How do we do it?
•We meet as a full governing body at least each half term (minutes are available for inspection in the entrance hall). Other sub-committees meet as appropriate.
•We visit the school and staff meetings where possible and aim to work closely with the Junior School governors.
•We keep up-to-date by attending governors training courses.
How can you help?
•Approaching any governor with issues you may want to discuss - either personally or in writing.
