Our Governing Body

Composition and Roles

The Governing Body of The Smallberry Green Primary School is composed of 15 Governors (a mixture of parents, staff, members of the community and local authority appointments) in line with our Instrument of Government which can be found here.

Within the Governing Body, named Governors take responsibility for specific areas. A list of our current Governors and their roles and responsibilities can be found at the bottom of this page.

Each Governor has signed up to our Code of Practice which can be found here.

Committees and Meetings

There are three committees (Resources, Pastoral and Standards), which will meet once each term, with one or two full Governing Body meetings each term as necessary. A new structure for the committees has just been agrees and the terms of reference will be finalised at the end of the Spring Term 2017 and will be uploaded to the website.

Skills, Experience and Expertise

Our Governing Body possesses a diverse range of personal and professional skills which they draw on in acting as a ‘critical friend’ to Smallberry Green.

 

Recent Activity

We play an active role in the life in the school and some recent activities include;

  • Articulating a new vision for the school encapsulated as “A vibrant learning community where each member (children, staff, governors and parents) considers themselves a leader of learning and adopts a can do attitude. The culture is one of high aspiration and high achievement.”
  • Working with the school’s senior leadership team to co-construct our school development plan.
  • Completing a comprehensive review of all of our school policies and updating and signing them off and reviewing on a regular basis.
  • Commencing a programme of visits (e.g. to see the new creative curriculum in action) in school to help us better understand how learning takes place and how the school operates in order to be a more effective Governing Body and to be able to make more insightful and impactful decisions. A copy of our school visits policy can be found here.
  • Participating in a joint Staff-Governors INSET day at the start of each academic year.

Training

Linked to our vision for the school, all of our Governors consider themselves a leader of their own learning and regularly attend training in order to help the Governing Body play our role more effectively. Each Governor sets a personal training goal each year.
