Pinxton Nursery School (Maintained) Governing Body

All state maintained schools in England have a Governing Body, which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. A key role is to act as a ‘critical friend’: to support, to challenge, to ask questions and ultimately to represent the school community.

The Governing Body works in close partnership with the Headteacher, staff and the local authority. Whilst the Headteacher is, responsible for the day-to-day running of the school, the governors are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance. It ensures the school functions well and maintains the proper range of academic and social objectives.

Governing Body meetings

The Governing Body has five Governing Body meetings per academic year to meet and review the progress of the nursery school. 

Governing Body meetings for the 2019/20 academic year are on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 18th September 2019
  • Wednesday 20th November 2019
  • Wednesday 5th February 2020
  • Wednesday 22nd April 2020
  • Wednesday 24th June 2020

 

 

 

Governing Body committees

The Governing Body also has Committees to deal with specific details of governing the school.  These committees report to the Governing Body meetings.  The committees and their remits for review and challenge are as follows:

  • Teaching and Learning Committee (TLC)- Key focus of the committee: -to monitor progress, pupil performance and other key improvement issues in the School Improvement Plan.
  • Resource Management Committee (RM)– Key focus of the committee: - to determine, approve and monitor the school’s budget, budgetary systems and allocation of resources, including personnel, pay, premises, strategy, health and safety and security responsibilities.
  • Headteacher Performance Management Committee (HTPM) - key focus to meet with the Headteacher and an External Advisor to undertake an appraisal of the Headteacher’s performance against previously agreed performance objectives. Agree objectives for the forthcoming Appraisal Cycle relating to Leadership and Management, Attainment and Progress and Teaching and Learning.
  • Pay Committee
  • Pay Appeal Committee

Named Governors

A number of governors are also ‘Named Governors’ with responsibilities to review curriculum and other areas of the school’s role.  Each named governor meets the teacher in school who is responsible for that area.
