Governors

Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about our school governors and the work that they do.

 

The main role of the governors is one of monitoring and evaluation to support the Headteacher and staff of the school.  We help them to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence across the whole spectrum of school life. The key document used for this is the School Development Plan (SDP).

 

We have a legal responsibility to:

  • Ensure that the National Curriculum is followed
  • To oversee the school’s budget
  • Monitor the condition of the school buildings and grounds
  • To ensure that Special Educational needs are met

 

The Governing Body operates under a circle model whereby it meets at least once every (new) term. We sometimes set up committees or working groups to look at particular issues such as pay, performance management and buildings development. A small group (Headteacher, Governor responsible for Finance and the School Finance Officer) meets every month to keep an eye on school finances between our termly governor meetings. All governors are informed about what happens at these monthly finance meetings. 

 

There are several categories of governor, appointed by different bodies that have an interest in the school. These are Foundation governors, Parent governors, Staff governors and TKAT governors.  All governors have equal status, however they were appointed.

 

Napier Primary Academy’s governors are committed to their goal of achieving an excellent learning environment for all pupils during their time at our school. They are focused not only on educational achievement but on the school’s core values, which are vitally important.

 

Governors and the Clerk mostly carry out their duties during evening meetings and may attend training sessions and seminars to help them do their job effectively. We also go into school to meet with the Headteacher, other members of staff and pupils to find out how the school is progressing towards its targets.

 

This Governing Body will monitor the performance of the school against the school objectives as previously described to ensure that we continue to perform to an outstanding level. 

 

If you are interested in becoming a governor please contact the school office.
