Welcome to the Governors’ section. The Governing Body has a very important part to play in how we run our school.
Governance Statement for the Iveson School Governing Body
The governing body has three core strategic functions:
Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the preformance management of staff;
Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
The day to day management of the school is the responsibility of the Head teacher and senior leadership team.
The governing body also ensures that the school complies fully with statutory safeguarding procedures. All staff have signed a record to confirm they have read Part 1 of the DfE statutory guidance “Keeping Children Safe in Education”. The governing body has familiarised itself with the document and are working with the safeguarding lead in school to complete the annual safeguarding audit.
The remit of the governing body is to help monitor the top three school development priorities:
- to formulate a clear vision and strategic three year plan for the future of the school involving all stakeholders
- to continue to narrow the gap against national standards in order to secure combined age related expectations and demonstrate accelerated progress over time
- to embed differentiation, pace and independence in all lessons to ensure best use is made of all learning time.
We have 10 Governors who meet four times per year as a full group, as well as meeting regularly as smaller sub committee groups. We also have a Joint Review Group which reviews the school’s progress towards its post Ofsted objectives and looks in detail at attainment and progress data for the children.
Governors come from all walks of life and we have a range of governors including one of our Leeds City Councillors, business people, staff and parents.
Parent governors are really important as they can represent the views of the community we serve. If you have any concerns about the school then your parent representatives can put these forward on your behalf.
