Governors' Information and Duties

Welcome to the Governors' section

 

The Governors are a group of dedicated volunteers drawn from the local community who have a range of knowledge, skills and experience. 

 

The Governing Board has three key responsibilities:

 

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school
  • To hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent

 

In doing this, we aim to fully support the school's vision of being "A Place to Flourish".

 

At Blundeston CEVCP School, there are 12 members on the Governing Board, including staff from the school, parents of children at the school and representatives of the Church, the local council and community.  Together, we make strategic decisions on matters such as performance targets, the school budget, school policies and school improvement plans, putting the needs of the children at the heart of all the decisions we make.

 

The whole Governing Board meets twice a term and we also have a Resources sub-committee, meeting once a term, with responsibility for specific areas, such as Finance, Personnel, Premises and Health and Safety.

 

So now that you know who we are and a little about what we do, we hope that you will feel free to approach us whenever you see us.  If you have a question or suggestion, or would like more information about any current Governor vacancies, please do not hesitate to contact us through the school office, or by completing the contact form below.

 

Best wishes,

Jane Liddell (Chair of Governors)
