Governors

 
Our Governors work together for the good of our school. Our Governing Body is made up of different types of governor to ensure a range of views and experiences are capitalised on.

We actively encourage parents and carers to become involved in the Governing Body. As the child's first educators, you have an essential role to play in ensuring that all pupils achieve their full potential.

The different categories of governors on our governing body are:

  • parent governors who have a child in school at the time of their election, and are elected by the parents with children at the school;
  • staff governors who are members of staff at the school and are elected by their colleagues;
  • co-opted governors are appointed on to the governing body by the other members because they come from a specialist group, such as the business community or because they possess a particular skill which can contribute to the effective governance and success of the school;
  • local authority(LA) governors who are nominated by the local councillor and appointed by the governing body;
  • the Headteacher (HT) is also a member of the governing body by right of the position they hold in the school;
  • associate members are not actually governors but can be appointed to serve on committees and attend meetings of the full governing body. They do not have the right to vote at meetings of the full governing body but may been given voting rights on the committees that they are a member of, but these rights can only be given by the governing body.

Governors now have a duty to provide their personal details to the Department for Education (July 2016). This information is encrypted and stored securely on Edubase. All governors have complied with this requirement and the DfE now has an accurate record of our governing board.

 

All the governors and associate members of St Mary’s CE Primary School, Cadishead  listed below have signed the Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests

 

 This is a declaration of any personal or business interest they or any relative or person closely connected with them, have with businesses or other organisations that may have dealings with the school. This could for example include owning or having a relative work for a business that had dealings with school; having a relative working in or for school or being a governor of another school. Any potential conflict will be listed in the table below.

 

If any interest a governor has could be seen to cause a conflict of interest they would be asked to withdraw from any decision making concerned. This is to ensure that our governors can always be seen to be putting the interest of the school first. There are also separate staff disciplinary, complaints, grievance, pupil discipline and appeals committees which are convened if they are required.
