Governors

Our School Governing Body

The Governing Body at Crampton is made up of volunteers who are passionate about ensuring that each and every child in the school gets the very best possible start in their early years and primary education, and to ensure every child is given opportunities to achieve their full potential.

 

School Governing Body

School Governors play an important part in the success of schools. They are volunteers, who work with the head and the local education authority to improve standards in their school. Every school has a governing body, which could consist of between nine and twenty people depending on the size and type of the school.

They are:

  • Parent governors who have a child at the school and are elected by other parents.
  • Teacher governors who work at the school and are elected by other teachers.
  • Staff governors who are members of the non-teaching/support staff at the school and are elected by their colleagues.
  • Local education authority governors who are appointed by the Council through the political parties.
  • Co-opted governors who are appointed by other governors as representatives of the wider local community, as business representative, or because of particular skills that they can bring to the governing body.
  • Foundation governors who are appointed by the Church or Trust which supports the school.
  • Heads can choose whether or not to be a governor at their school. At Crampton our head has always been a member of the governing body.

 

The role of the governing body is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • Set the aims and objectives for the school
  • Set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • Be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)
