Governors

Governor Bios

The governing board is composed of the following members, as detailed in the Instrument of Government for the school dated 1.6.18:

1 Staff governor (elected into post),

1 Headteacher ex officio),

1 LEA governor nominated by the LA and accepted for appointment by the Governing Board,

  2. Holding Executive Leaders/ Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the organization/school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the organization/school and making sure its money is well spent.

 

The Governing Board of Minet Junior School has resolved to conduct all its business as a full Governing board, and to work collectively without a committee model structure over the academic year 2018/19 other than statutory committees such as Pay and Salaries.

  1. To set and regularly review the vision and values of the school and ensure that these are shared with all stakeholders
