Ridgeway School Governing Body- 2016-17
The Governing Body at Ridgeway School has always played a supportive and committed role, ensuring that the school meets all of its responsibilities. These include:
There are 9 members of the governing body (plus the Headteacher) who attend 6 meetings throughout the year. Meetings are focused on both business and strategy and allow members to work together on current issues as well as developing new policies for the future. There is a wide variety of skills amongst the governors who include parents, staff, community and co-opted members.
As well as attending full governing body meetings each member attends one (or more) of the sub-committee groups that meet specifically to discuss finance, premises, personnel and curriculum issues.
One of the most rewarding aspects of a governor’s role is to visit the school during the day to monitor the work of the school and observe the children and work alongside the staff.
