Governors' page

Governors are Volunteers and they support and challenge the School's leadership to ensure that every child gets the best education possible and that all children make progress to be the best that they can be.

 

Here at Chandag Infant School, we are striving to become an outstanding School and the Governors meet regularly throughout the year to review what is happening within the school.  The Governors attend the LGB (Local Governing Body, previously called Full Governing Body or FGB) to consider what has been discussed at Committee level and to review and agree any decisions that may be required.  The LGB meetings allow all Governors to have a fair view of the school and its standards and what is working well, and what areas need to be a focus to ensure that we are even better.

 

Governors look closely at all areas of the school.  These are financial, personnel, building maintenance, health, safety and wellbeing of all, as well as looking at the standards of progress and attainment for the children, and the curriculum.  Each area is reviewed regularly and reported back at the LGBs, where as a collective we make decisions to shape the school.

 

Clerk to Governors is Joanne Sammons (the Clerk is the official notetaker and doesn't take part in any of the discussions or decisions made by the Governing body)

If you would like more information about Governance, please do not hesitate to contact the School office, or Joanne Sammons our clerk to Governors, at governorsclerk@chandaginfantschool.org.uk

Scheme of Delegation

The Scheme of Delegation describes how Wellsway Multi Academy Trust is governed and managed. It particularly describes the relationship between trustees, governors and the executive team and how they comply with statutory and regulatory requirements.

School Governors represent the largest volunteer workforce in the country - there are around 350,000 of them!

 

The Governing body of Chandag Infant School has 14 Governor positions, including 4 for parent Governors. Parent Governors are elected by parents at the school. They are vital to the governing body because they can raise the issues that concern our parents.

 

For more information on becoming a Governor at our school, please contact Amanda Haskins via our school office.
