Courage and Perseverance Conquers All

Governors

The Governing Body of St Gilbert’s operates a circle model of governance where the governing body works as a 'whole team' without any committees. Meetings are held every half term, or more if required. This means that Governors have up to date information regarding the school, and can offer timely support and challenge, as well as take action should the need arise.

Core Functions of Governance

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent

 

The Role of Governors

Governors work on a voluntary basis to support the strategic leadership of the school.  Governors typically serve for four years. To carry out their duties Governors have a number of delegated roles and responsibilities, these are shown below. 

Structure

Our Governing Body is made up of 12 Governors: -

  • 2 Parent Governors
  • 1 Local Authority Governor
  • The Headteacher
  • 1 Staff Governor
  • 7 Foundation Governors
