What we are expected to do

As governors, we have three core roles:

  • To ensure the school has a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • To hold the senior leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of the staff;
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent.

 

 

How we are organised

Front Lawn Primary Academy works as part of The Kemnal Academies Trust, (TKAT). As a TKAT school, the strategic and operational roles of governors are delegated to the school by the TKAT Board of Trustees.  The framework for this relationship is set out in the 'TKAT Scheme of Delegation', see below.

Front Lawn Primary Academy Local Governing Body

Each school has a Local Governing Body (LGB). The LGB membership includes the Head of School, staff governors, parent governors and co-opted governors.
 

The role of the LGB is to monitor, evaluate and (where appropriate) advise the school regarding:

  • its curriculum offer, teaching and learning
  • the provision of effective safeguarding and health and safety
  • promotion of the school’s ethos, aims and vision
  • pupil progress, standards of achievement and attainment of year groups, classes and vulnerable groups
  • standards in relation to end of year targets and predictions
  • budget setting and expenditure
  • staffing and appointments
  • attendance and behaviour
  • the revision and implementation of all statutory policies that do not require approval of the TKAT South Executive Committee.

 

The LGB meets twice each term.  The first meeting each term is focused on pupil achievement and other curriculum items.  The second meeting is focused on finance and resources.

 

Local Governing Body - Official Positions

The Local Governing Body (LGB) has the following official positions:

  • Chair of Local Governing Body (Chair)
  • Vice Chair of Local Governing Body (Vice Chair)
  • Head of School (ex officio)
  • Clerk to the Governing Body (the Clerk)

 

Local Governing Body - Other Responsibilities

Members of the LGB have responsibility for supporting and monitoring the following areas of school activity:

  • Child Protection & Safeguarding; Finance and Resources; Headteacher Performance Review; Literacy Development; Numeracy Development; Pay; Premises; Pupil Premium; SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities); Student Attendance; Student Behaviour; Student Progress and Achievement.

 

Pay Committee

Each school Local Governing Committee has a Pay Committee. This sub-committee is made up of a small group of governors. It is responsible for approving any annual salary changes proposed by the headteacher.

What we do and how we do it

To carry out our responsibilities the members of the Front Lawn Primary Academy Local Governing Body hold a set of meetings and make visits to the school.

Visits

To be excellent governors we need to have an excellent knowledge of the school. To make this possible we support our committee meetings with visits to the school. These visits usually involve a meeting with a member of staff to discuss a particular area of school activity and the observation of pupils at work in their classrooms.

 

Governors’ Action Plan

To make sure that governors work in a systematic and coordinated way that best supports the school, visits are organised under an annual Governors’ Action Plan.  Please see the list of key documents below for ours.

 

What we have done in the past year

All school governing bodies should produce an annual report or accountability statement that sets out what the governors have done over the past year and what difference we have made. We've included ours in the list of key documents below.
