Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section. 


Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories and an end of term date.

Governing bodies have three main roles:

  • Provide strategic direction for the school
  • To act as a critical friend of the Headteacher, who is responsible for the  day to day management of the school and the Staff
  • To ensure accountability
  •  

Governors are all volunteers and with the exception of the Headteacher, serve a four-year term after which they can seek re-election or re-appointment.

Governor meetings are generally held once a term and the three main committees (Finance and Personnel, Curriculum, Premises) meet once or twice a term.

Meetings are clerked by TBA and minutes of the meetings can be viewed in the school office.

The governing body is supported in its work by Mrs Sarah Smith the consortium finance manager.

Governors can be contacted via the school office and welcome your comments and ideas.

Governor Pecuniary Interests 19-20

Summary of relevant Business and Pecuniary Interests information of Governors

Birchanger Church of England Primary School 2019-2020

Governors hold an important public office and their identity should be known to their school and wider communities. In the interests of transparency, all governors are required to make an annual declaration of any relevant business and pecuniary interests that could represent a conflict of interest when exercising their role as a governor. These declarations are recorded in a register which is open to public inspection with the same information also available on the website. 

 

At the start of each meeting of the governing body governors are invited to declare any new, relevant interests since their most recent annual declaration was made and, if there are any, both the register and the information on the website will be updated.
