Introduction from the Chair
Working alongside the headteacher and staff at Rowner Junior School, the governors are committed to ensuring all pupils are nurtured, having the opportunity to strive and achieve. Governors help the headteacher and the staff set challenging targets across the curriculum, aspiring to excellence across the whole spectrum of school life.
Governors have a legal responsibility to:
- Hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school
- Ensure the National Curriculum is followed
- Oversee the school budget
- Ensure that the school building and grounds are maintained in good condition
- Ensure that special educational needs are met.
Governors are appointed to the governing body to ensure that they provide strong links between the school, parents and the wider community. There are four categories of governors appointed to the governing body, these are:
- Community governors (sometimes called co-opted governors)
- Local Authority (LA) governors
- Parent governors
- Staff governors.
Governors meet twice each term as a full governing body and have two main committees (resources and curriculum) that meet regularly. Most governors have a special responsibility for a particular subject or area within the school and will attend occasional meetings for that subject as needed.
