How do the Governors do this at Chapel Break?
Our aim is for meetings of the Full Governing Body to be held at least once every half term where all aspects of the school are reviewed and discussed. Where possible Governors also regularly spend time at the school on an individual basis to both help with and monitor all aspects of daily school life.
We also have three sub-committees who meet at least once a term:
- The Finance & Personnel Committee’s main responsibility is to oversee the school budgets, staffing policies and matters relating to the buildings and grounds.
- The Teaching, Learning and Assessment Committee reviews the school’s curriculum to ensure that it meets the standards required, that the assessment processes in place are robust and effective and that all pupils, whatever their ability, make the required levels of progress and maximise their potential.
- The Behaviour & Welfare Committee monitor and review such things as the Safeguarding of both Children and Staff, Health & Safety policy and the level and quality of extra-curricular activities at the school.
The Governing Body is made up of:
- The Head Teacher
- Parents (proposed and elected by other parents who have children at the school)
- Elected Members of Staff at the school
- A Local Authority Representative
- Co-Opted Community Representatives
During the 2020–2021 academic year we: appointed two Co-Opted Governors and have also re-elected two Co-Opted Governors for a further term on the Governing Body. We accepted the resignation of a Co-opted Governor who will leave the Governing Body at the end of the current academic year. All Governor attendances can be viewed on our website.
