The Governors provide challenge, leadership, support and direction for the Headteacher, determining the values and policies of our school. They do this in a number of ways through full governing body meetings, committee meetings, learning walks, monitoring visits, risk assessments and general support of our daily activities. They decide the school structure and staffing requirements, ensuring that we deliver the best possible education to the children at our school within the confines of the budget allocated to us for this purpose. They monitor and evaluate the school’s performance and put strategies into place to address areas that they feel need improvement at any given time.
We are fortunate to have dedicated and committed governors all of whom are extremely supportive of our school. Their work and excellence was recognised in June 2011 when they successfully applied for the GovernorMark Award and seven years a number of those governors remain on our Board – a wonderful achievement for our school.
You are warmly invited to attend the general part (Part One) of the Governors’ meetings, the dates of which will be published in the school newsletter.
Any confidential matters will be discussed in Part Two of these meetings. The Chair or Clerk to the Governors may be contacted by writing to c/o Shebbear Community School, Shebbear, Beaworthy, Devon EX21 5SG. Telephone: 01409 281220.
