About Governors 

Governors are part of the largest volunteer workforce in the country; they play a key role in helping the school provide the best possible education for all its pupils.

The Governing Body is drawn from various sections of the Community.
●   Parent governors: 7
●   Staff governors: 5 including the Headteacher
●   LA appointed governors: 1
●   Co-opted governors: 2

The Governing Body must exercise its functions with a view to fulfilling a largely strategic role in the running of the school. It establishes the strategic framework by: setting aims and objectives for the school; adopting policies for achieving those aims and objectives; setting targets for achieving those aims and objectives.

The governing body monitors and evaluates progress of its strategy and regularly reviews the framework for the school in the light of that progress. When establishing the strategic framework and reviewing progress, the governing body considers advice given by the Headteacher, local authority and other agencies.

The Governors, in partnership with school staff draw up a School Development Plan which provides the main mechanism for the strategic planning.

To carry out  their responsibilities governing bodies must hold at least three meetings per school year. Greenleaf full Governing Body usually meets five times in the school year. Meetings are convened by the clerk who takes directions from the Governing Body and the Chair. Part of the Agenda is set nationally, part by the local authority and part by the school itself.

Some Governors' business is also conducted at Committee Meetings. Greenleaf has 2 regular committees; Resources and Curriculum. Each committee usually meets termly. There are also some committees which meet when required; Staff Appointments, Requests for Emergency Leave,  Complaints, Disciplinary and Performance Management.

Governors visit the school regularly so that they kept are informed of all aspects of school life. Each Governor is linked to a class and is also responsible for a subject area.

The Headteacher and Governing Body work in close partnership. The Headteacher discusses all the main aspects of school life with the governing body and expects the governing body to both challenge and support the school. Acting as a “critical friend”, the governing body  offers support and constructive advice; governors question proposals and seek further information to enable them to make sound decisions.
