Governors

Governing Body

 

The School Governors have a central role to play in the leadership of the school, they are similar to a board of directors. They have legal powers and responsibilities in relation to the school and can only act together. They meet once every half term to help make decisions about how the school is run. They represent all sections of society, united by the wish to provide the best education for the children at Cookley Sebright Primary School with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at our school.

 

Our Governing Body has a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

 

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  2. Holding the Headteacher of the school to account for the educational performance and well-being of the school and its pupils.
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school, making sure its money is well spent.

 

Following due consideration and full discussion by the Governing Body at the Full Governing Body meeting on 27th September 2019 it was decided that it would be reconstituted with:

 

Three parent governors

One LA governor

One staff governor

One Headteacher

One foundation governor

One ex officio governor

One co-opted governor

Total number of governors 9

 

From the above, the Chair and Vice Chair are elected by all the governors every two years. All governors apart from the Headteacher and the nominee of the Rector of the Kidderminster Ismere Team Ministry hold office for a period of four years.

 

All parents at the school are eligible to vote and elect Parent Governors. You will be notified when any Parent elections are due. If you are interested in being involved in this capacity please ask for more information or speak to one of the governors who will be happy to tell you about their work.

 

Our current Governing Body is set out below along with their attendance at meetings since September 2017. The Clerk to the Governing Body is Mrs Jan Porter who can be contacted via school or jporter@cookleyprimary.worcs.sch.uk
