School governing bodies fulfil three core strategic functions:
1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
2. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of the staff.
3. Overseeing the financial management of the school, ensuring it is money well spent.
The Governing Body of Holmer Green First School and Pre-School has 13 positions (please see the membership grid). The Chair of Governors is Mr David Eteen and the Vice Chair is Mrs Debbie Mynett.
As well as holding full governing body meetings, the governing body is structured through committees to address specific areas of focus: Curriculum Challenge, Premises, Health & Safety, Finance & Personnel, Performance Management and Pay Review. Governors may also be required to sit on grievance, complaints or disciplinary panels. Minutes from the full Governing Body meetings can be found in the school reception.
Governors can be contacted via the school office - firstname.lastname@example.org.
