Dr Mengeaud

Els governadors de les escoles tenen la responsabilitat central de supervisar el lideratge i la direcció de la seva escola i millorar els estàndards.

Si bé el director és responsable de la gestió diària de l'escola, la funció de l'òrgan de govern és proporcionar el lideratge estratègic i actuar com a "amic crític", donant suport a la tasca del director i de la resta del personal.

 

Els membres són elsguardians de la governança del Patronat amb un paper limitat i distanciat, "els ulls en mans fora" i tenen una vegada a l'any els patrons per rendir comptes del govern efectiu del Patronat en la Junta General Anual (AGA).

L'òrgan de govern té un paper a l'hora d'establir objectius de rendiment escolar, decidir les prioritats de despesa, contractar personal i supervisar el progrés.

Els governadors també tenen un paper formal i informal en la gestió de les queixes dels pares.  Els pares poden contactar amb els governadors a través del Secretari dels governadors [clerk@westburyparkschool.co.uk]

Els governadors de Westbury Park es dediquen al seu paper de suport i desafiament al personal per fer que l'escola sigui el millor que pot ser per als nostres fills.

Quan es consideren les habilitats i la formació que requereixen els governadors, es presta especial atenció a tres funcions estratègiques bàsiques del Consell de Govern:

 

  1. Definir la visió, l'ethos i la direcció estratègica de l'escola

  2. Exigir comptes al director del rendiment educatiu del centre i dels seus alumnes

  3. Supervisar el rendiment financer de l'escola i assegurar-se que els seus diners es gastin bé

Estructura de la Junta

  2. demanar comptes al director i a l'equip de direcció de l'escola sobre qüestions relacionades amb l'anterior;

  3. Assumptes relacionats amb els acords d'auditoria del Trust

  4. Sistemes de control intern i gestió de riscos

​​

  2. Desenvolupar un programa formal de seguiment i avaluació de l'ensenyament i l'aprenentatge de l'Escola, en el context del Pla Quinquennal de l'Escola, el Pla de Desenvolupament Escolar, el Pla d'Acció de NEE, el Currículum Nacional i altres directrius del DfE i de l'Autoritat Local;
