THE GOVERNING BODY
The Governors of the school are responsible for the staffing, finance, premises, curriculum and future planning of the school. The Governors work very closely with the Headteacher in making decisions about the school.
At John Shelton Primary School there are 12 Governors:
4 are elected by the parents
2 are local authority appointees
3 are co-opted by the Governors
1 Teacher Governor
1 Headteacher Governor
1 Support Staff Governor
A full list of Governors is available from the school
A group of governors met in September to identify priorities for the next academic year. The aim was to ensure the governing body maintains involvement in the monitoring of school Improvement and holding leaders to account. The group considered the 20 self-evaluation questions identified by the all-party Parliamentary Group on Education Governance and Leadership. A copy of the Governing Body Action plan is attached for information.
