The Governing Body has the statutory duty to regulate the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. To do this, governors must have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:
1. Ensuring the clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school;
2. Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
Our school governors for 2020/2021 and 2019/2020 are detailed under the ‘Governor Information’ section of this website.
For information of the school’s financial performance please use the following link: https://www.compare-school-performance.service.gov.uk/school/113166/shebbear-community-school/workforce-and-finance/finance
From September 2019 we hold half termly full Governing Body meetings (chaired by Mrs C Coward), and termly Resources committee meetings. The Resources committee (chaired by Mr A Goode), has delegated responsibility for Finance, Premises, Personnel and Health & Safety within the limits of various school policies, such as the Finance Policy.
We also have the statutory committees in place, however these meet on an ‘as and when’ basis as need demands.
