Morton Trentside Primary School Governing Body for the Year 2017/18

 

We are very lucky at  Morton Trentside that we have a enthusiastic and dedicated team of governors who come from a wide range of backgrounds and each bring their own skills and expertise to our governing body. Together with the Headteacher, our role is to maintain and improve the quality of education and standards of achievement within the school and strive to provide an outstanding education and meet the aims of the school.

 

It may be helpful to say that in summary there are three key roles of the governing bodies of all schools:

 

1. To provide a strategic view of where the school is heading

2. To act as a critical friend of the school

3. To hold the school to account for the educational standards it achieves and quality of the            

    education it provides.

.

The Governing Body has been reconstituted in line with statutory guidance, our instrument of governance, which was amended by the governing body on 30th January 2017.  The Local Authority Variance order was granted on 2nd February 2017 and our instrument of governance states that we can have 9 appointed Governors, as follows:

 

3 elected parents

1 nominated Local Authority Governor

1 elected staff member

3 Co-opted governors

1 Head Teacher

 

The Chair of the Governing Body is Mr Gareth Day.

The Vice Chair of the Governing Body is Mrs Penny Lightfoot.

 

At the moment we have a parent governor vacancy and if anyone would like more information regarding this role or you would like to contact the governors please contact the Clerk to the Governors, Mrs Caroline Graves, either in writing by leaving a letter at the school office or via the school enquiries email address at:

enquiries@mortontrentside.lincs.sch.uk.

 

The Governing Body attends Full Governing Body meetings throughout the year but it also has three sub committees with meet throughout the year:

 

  • Standards,
  • Premises
  • Finance.

 

As we are a small body of governors, all of the main governors who attend the full governing body meeting also attend on all of the committees (with the exception of the staff representative who does not attend on the finance committee).   

 

As a Local Authority Primary School it is imperative that we, as governors, continuously review the schools position with regard to academisation and strive to make the best decisions for our school.  Therefore the governing body is currently looking to explore all the avenues available for the strategic future of our school.
