Governors

Our Governing Body

 

Our Governing Body has been set up according to the statutory guidance from the Department for Education.

Our Full Governor Meetings are complimented with three sub-committees as follows:

  1. Finance, premises, facilities & health and safety
  2. Personnel, Welfare & Teaching - Learning (curriculum) & Assessment (outcomes), safeguarding, behaviour and pupil premium
  3. MAT

 

The sub-committees meet regularly and report to every Full Governors Meeting. The standard term of office for a governor is four years. The chair and vice-chair are elected annually at the first meeting of the academic year. 

 

Our Governors attend training sessions and seminars to help keep up to date with changes in schools and education and to enable them to do a fantastic job.  They also regularly come into school to meet the headteacher, members of staff and the pupils. This helps them to find out how the school is progressing towards it targets.

 

If you need to contact the Chair of Governors, Mr Iain Martin, correspondence can be sent to the School address or via email at Blagdon.pri@n-Somerset.gov.uk.
