‘Inspiring Young Minds’

Meet the Governors

Governors play a vital role in the smooth running and development of Seagrave Village Primary School. Our governors come from a range of backgrounds and each brings a unique set of skills to enhance the work of the school. There are different categories of Governor. Staff Governors are elected by the school staff, Parent Governor positions are advertised to all parents when a vacancy arises and are then elected by parents if there are more candidates than positions. Co-opted Governors are appointed by the Governing Body after skills analysis has taken place.

Our structure and how we work

 

In 2015 the Seagrave Governing Body had to undergo reconstitution. As part of this process we looked a number of effective governance structures and concluded that the traditional model of 3 annual Full Governing Body meetings, with numerous sub-committee meetings was no longer effective or meeting the needs of modern governance.

We decided to adopt an approach where individual governors are assigned monitoring responsibilities which are directly linked to the School Development Plan. A governor will then bring the findings of his/her monitoring to report on at Full Governing Body meetings. We have found that this provides governors with a much better picture of what is going on across the school.

Monitoring areas are not set in stone and may change from year to year depending on the skills set of the governing body and the needs of the school.

 

We are guided by the Bradgate Education Partnership’s (BEP) terms of reference for governing bodies.

  1. addition we have our own locally agreed terms of reference which incorporate the BEP schemes of delegation (a large document which states who is responsible for what). This document is referred to regularly by governors and used as job description for the different roles within the body. The document is re-agreed each Autumn and includes names of delegated responsibilities.
