About the Governing Body

Our Governors and Their Role in School

The Governors are the formal strategic body who meet at least once each term to set priorities for the school and agree on the long term plans including the school budget.

They agree the vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school including policy and procedures, with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement and pastoral care.

Specific duties include agreeing the school budget, setting staffing levels, ensuring that a broad and balanced curriculum is delivered whilst ensuring that management of the school premises is given high priority which includes monitoring the health and safety of pupils, staff and visitors.

The Governing Body is made up of parent governors, elected by the parents of pupils at the school, staff governors including the Headteacher, Local Authority (LA) appointed Governors and Co-opted Governors.

The team is made up of a variety of people from different backgrounds but who all share the passionate belief that Overchurch Junior  School should be a happy and successful school where every child is given the opportunity to reach their full potential.

The Governing Body meet 6 times a year.
