Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

 

The Governors at Galley Hill are a small group of people, both elected by parents and chosen from the wider community. They are all volunteers and as such are not paid a salary for this role. They work closely with the school staff to support the school and to help it to meet its statutory obligations. This covers three main areas:

 

  • Strategic: involving setting policies, planning for the future and managing change.

  • Monitoring and accountability: ensuring the school meets educational and financial targets and has plans in place to meet performance objectives.

  • Supporting: supporting the school by celebrating and praising achievement, but also act as a critical friend, seeking improvement and asking questions where appropriate.

 

The full Governing body meets on a regular basis, usually once every half term. In addition to this the Governors attend sub-committee meetings at least twice a term. At Galley Hill we have two sub-committees: Teaching and Learning and Resources. The approved minutes of the meetings held by the Governing Body detail attendance at the meetings and are available from the school office.

 

The Governors also try to visit the school during the day and at events such as the school fair, open evenings etc. They also represent the school at a variety of functions and meetings.

 

As a Governing body we respect (and need) feedback from parents and we are always happy to meet with you.

Contact can be made via the school office.
