Governance

The Governing Board of Someries Infant School and Early Childhood Education Centre

Our Governing Board provides strategic leadership and accountability across our school.

The Governing Board meets on a half-termly basis and has three core functions:

  1.  overseeing the financial performance of the school
  2.  ensuring the school’s money is well spent
  3.  holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

 

It is the responsibility of our Governing Board to:

  • agree the aims and values of the school
  • monitor and review the policies and organisation of the school
  • ensure that financial procedures are sound
  • participate in the appointment of staff
  • ensure that all decisions are made in the best interests of all children attending the school
