The Governing Body of the Beardall Fields Primary and Nursery School is committed to continue to raise standards of education for pupils in our community by enabling them to be Happy, Inspired, Valued and Successful. To see we accomplish this we have a strong focus on the three strategic functions of school governance:
1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
2. Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;
3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
4. Stakeholder engagement; staff, pupils and parents
Our governing body is made up of; 3 parent governors, 4 co-opted governors, 1 local authority governor, 1 staff governor and the head teacher.
The full Governing Body meets once each term as do our four sub-committees. The whole governing body are currently members of all three committees. The three committees cover all aspects of the school governance in detail, some of the core functions we are involved in include finance, pupil and strategic matters, policy approval, staffing structures (including recruitment) and receiving updated information regarding pupil attainment and progress (including pupil premium).
Each year, working with the Head Teacher, we identify areas of the school to improve and we develop an improvement plan with key milestones to help us to enable all our pupils to achieve their very best. You can find out more about our Governing Body by using the links below.
