The Governors for this school, in conjunction with the Local Education Authority, will be responsible for the management of the school under the 1986 Education Act. The Headteacher will be responsible for the day to day running of the school. Parents are reminded that they should, in the first instance, approach the Headteacher on any matters concerning the school and pupils.
The Governing Body will be responsible for setting vision, ethos and strategic direction, creating robust accountability and ensuring financial probity.
They will carry out their responsibilities by challenging the way things are done, providing support to the senior leadership team and by adopting and checking that relevant policies are being implemented. Regular meetings will take place together with the Headteacher. The full Governing Body will meet each term, but because the running of the school is such a complex issue, the Governing Body will be split up into a number of sub-committees/ working parties:
- Finance, staffing, Health & Safety, and Premises
- Curriculum & Standards
The aim of the Governors will be to make Gagle Brook School a centre of excellence for learning; creating a fun, enjoyable and safe place to be.
