GOVERNOR INFORMATION

Structure and Responsibilities of the Governing Body at John Hunt Primary

 

The Governing Body of John Hunt School meets on a termly basis as a Full Governing Body to make decisions concerning the overall direction of the School.  The members are drawn from various backgrounds and it is always the intention of the Governing Body to be as open as possible in fulfilling its aims.  Their main role is to support the Headteacher and staff; the phrase often used to describe this role is 'a critical friend'.  The governors legal duties include:

 

  • Setting the strategic direction, policies and targets for the school
  • Approving the school budget
  • Reviewing progress against the school's budget and objectives
  • Appointing, challenging and supporting the Headteacher

 

Two main committees are in place to meet between the main meetings - Resources Committee (mainly focused on finance and staffing issues) and Strategic and Development Committee (mainly focused on issues directly related to pupils and the curriculum).  We also have a Pay Committee and Discipline Committee that are comprised with non-staff governors to deal with issues relating to staff pay and discipline issues.

 

Register of Business Interests

 

The Governing Body has a legal duty to act only in the interests of the school.  Where a situation arises in which a governor cannot do this due to a personal interest, steps are taken to identify, prevent and record the conflict in the governing body minutes.  A declaration of interest is included on every governing body meeting Agenda in addition to this all governors complete a declaration annually.
