Governors

 

The Role of the Local Governing Body

Every school in the UK is required by law to have an independent Governing Body that takes responsibility for overseeing the strategic direction and decisions made by each school. This Body should be made up proportionately by the various individuals who have a vested interest in the success of the school. 

Collectively, the Governing Body is legally responsible for promoting high standards of educational achievement in the school by:

  • Setting aims and objectives for the school
  • Setting the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Setting the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Monitoring & evaluating the progress the school is making towards achievements of its aims & objectives
  • Being a source of challenge and support to the head teachers.

The head teachers are responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategy set out by the Governing Body. Details of the schools aims and objectives can be found in the School Development Plan, which you can see by contacting the school.

The Full Governing Body collectively sets the agenda for each meeting based on the challenges anticipated by the head teachers and local and national education developments. The Body votes on the decisions the school needs to make so that it can work towards achieving its aims and objectives.

If an issue needs to be scrutinised in detail then, depending on the subject, one of committees will focus their attention on it and, depending on the issue, make a decision on behalf of the Full Governing Body. 

The Full Governing Body and both Committees will also hear from a variety of other sources. Policy documents from government and surveys that have been conducted nationally and locally are referred to. 

If you wish to contact any members of our governing body please email ‘admin@childeric.lewisham.sch.uk’ or telephone the school office on 020 8692 3453.

Our Governors

Our governing body includes:

  • Headteacher;
  • 2 elected staff governors;
  • 2 elected parent governors
  • 2 community governors; and
  • 2 co-opted governors

The staff governor is elected by the staff and normally serves for 4 years.

The parent governors are elected to serve the Local Governing Body by parents of the school and normally serve for 4 years.

Parent governors are pleased to hear about views and ideas and can be contacted in writing via the school office.

The co-opted and community governors are invited onto the Local Governing Body, by the Governors, to add areas of expertise and to represent the local community. We use a robust set of skills audits to ascertain the requirements and expertise required by the governing body.

A full list of the governors as well as information about their appointment, committee membership, attendance, and the Register of Business interests is available below.
