We are all volunteers who wish to make a positive contribution to the school and the education of all its children.

The governing body’s overriding responsibility is to work in partnership with the Headteacher, whom we appoint, to promote the continuous improvement in the performance of the school. We play an important part in raising school standards through our three key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and monitoring and evaluating school performance.

The full governing body meets twice a term. Our committees, which cover issues relating to behaviour, curriculum, staffing, building maintenance and finances, meet at least once a term. The governing body makes collective decisions.

As a body, we elect a Chair and Vice Chair and also Chairs for each of our committees.

A governor’s term of office is 4 years.

Parent Governors are elected when a vacancy arises, by a ballot of eligible parents (see Parent Governors’ information).  Local Authority Governors are selected by the governing body from a list of governors appointed by the local authority. Community Governors are appointed by the governing body.  Staff governors are drawn from both teaching and non teaching staff groups and are elected by the staff.

Our ‘Terms of Reference’ are outlined below. These are reviewed at the start of each academic year.

The governing body of Ashbrow School seeks to reflect fully the population of the school and welcomes members from all sections of our community.

The agendas and minutes of our meetings are made available to the local authority and are at the school for anyone to read via the school office. We do, however, maintain the right to confidentiality where appropriate. Non governors may attend meetings at the invitation of the governing body.

We have two sub committees and you can read their Terms of Reference by clicking on the committee name below:
