Our Governors

The role of the local governing body at Paddock Junior, Infant and Nursery School is to help the school fulfil its main aim which is to provide the best possible education for all of its pupils.

There are many things which governors are expected to do. The following provides a brief outline:

  • Governors have responsibility, with the Headteacher, for deciding, reviewing and monitoring many of the policies, plans and procedures within which the school operates
  • The governors’ role is strategic. The Headteacher’s role is both strategic and operational
  • It is important to recognise that governors are part of a team. They all have equal status and although they are appointed by different groups (parents, staff, Trust, Local Authority etc.) their main concern is the welfare of the whole school
  • Governors make decisions democratically, by consensus. Governors do not have individual powers to act alone
  • Governors have a duty to act fairly and without prejudice at all times
  • Governors share the responsibility of appointing staff with the school and must act in the same way as any good employee
  • Governors should consider carefully how their own decisions might affect other schools
  • Governors should encourage openness in all of their work for the school and should welcome enquiries from parents and the general public
