The Role of the Governing Body at Ecton Brook Primary School


The EBPS Governing Body is made up of individuals that are passionate about the education of the children within the community and meeting their needs within the changing landscape of Modern Britain. The Governors have various backgrounds, and bring a wealth of knowledge and skills to the Governing Body.

The Governing Body is responsible for the conduct of the school, and must promote high standards of educational achievement in the school. It is the schools accountable body and as such:

Provides a strategic view of the school by establishing a vision and setting the purpose and aims of the school within an agreed policy framework. It appoints and performance manages the head teacher, agreeing the school improvement strategy which includes setting statutory targets with supporting budgets and staffing structures;

Monitors and evaluates the work of the school by reviewing the performance of the head teacher, the effectiveness of the policy framework, progress towards the targets, and the effectiveness of the school improvement strategy;

Signs off the self-evaluation process and responds to school or trust improvement service and Ofsted reports as necessary.  In addition it holds the head teacher to account for the performance of the school and ensures that parents are involved, consulted and informed as appropriate, with information to the community being made available as required. 

Monitor the schools finance and ensure that financial control is in place, and accounts are regularly audited.

Ensure all Safeguarding procedures meeting statutory requirements.

   Support and promote the NPAT Partnership Vision.

The Governors Role

In order to know the strengths and weaknesses of the school, the main priority for each member of the Governing Body is to focus on the development and improvement of a key SSIP (School Improvement Plan) priority.  This will be done through consultation and liaison with a school leadership partner and addresses the following:

School targets for improvement, and how well we are meeting them

Impact of actions taken towards meeting the targets

Value for Money

This is done through:

Monitoring and sharing outcomes of monitoring

Analysing school performance data and compare the schools performance within the local and national context

Contributing to the Strategic School Improvement Plan by consulting with the leadership partner, setting priorities and monitoring and evaluating progress

   Having a clear understanding of staffing and budgetary priorities
