What is the role of the governing body?

The Governing Body works as a ‘whole team’, meeting six times per year, once in each term, without any separate committees.  An agenda for each meeting will include all the tasks which the governing body is required to consider, and the governing body will ‘commission’ assignments or activities arising from the business of the meeting, which will be recorded in the minutes.

In addition to ‘commissioning’ activities or actions on there behalf, the governing body has delegated monitoring activities to ‘monitoring pairs’ or ‘individuals’. This applies to statutory functions, and the priorities of the School Plan. Our priorities for this year have been taken from the Ofsted and section 48 inspections, plus extra-curricular activities. Please see the operational list below. In each case where a function has been delegated there is a statutory duty to report any action or decision to the governing body at the next meeting.

ST AUGUSTINE’S CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL - GOVERNING BODY

St Augustine’s Governing Body operates the circle model structure of governance, with typically six Full Governing Body (FGB) meetings per year, together with governor monitoring pairs/teams.

Governor monitoring includes the following four school improvement priorities.

  • SIP Priority 1: Curriculum, with a focus on lower attaining pupils and those making lower than expected progress
  • SIP Priority 2: Subject leaders
  • SIP Priority 3: Catholicity, other faiths and parish links
  • SIP Priority 4: Establishing learning outside the classroom, with a focus on making the curriculum more exciting and engaging
