WHO ARE THE GOVERNORS AT HEATH MOUNT PRIMARY SCHOOL?
Governors join the Governing body in five ways:
It is a legal requirement to have the first four governor categories.
The period of appointment is typically four years.
The Full Governing Body of Heath Mount Primary Schoos is made up as follows:
Michael Watson – Chair
AUTHORITY GOVERNOR – Birmingham City Council
PARENT GOVERNORS – Elected by Parents
CLERK TO GOVERNORS
The different backgrounds support balanced and responsive governance – ensuring accountability to the families and children of our school community.
The Head teacher is a member of the governing body through her leadership role.
We are very fortunate that senior leaders at Heath Mount Primary attends our full Governing Body meetings and Sub-committees and engage with governors on strategic and accountability matters.
In addition, we invite school staff to make presentations at our meetings to support our understanding of key aspects of their work when we are discussing a particular topic such as the curriculum or provision for children with special educational needs.
The more we know and understand about the schools, the more we are able to support and challenge to secure improvements.
The Full Governing Body meetings have taken place six times this year. The key focus is to support the strategic direction of the school and monitor the educational progress of the school and its financial performance.
We are in the process of creating two sub-committees and a Strategic Group. Each Committee has Terms of Reference which are renewed at the start of the school year and Cycles of Work which describe the priorities for the year and the range of activities to be undertaken, including visits to the school.
