Welcome to the Governors' section.

Annual Governance Statement for the Governing Body of Mosspits Lane Primary School.

In accordance with the Government’s requirement for all governing bodies, the 3 core strategic functions of Mosspits Lane Primary School Governing Body are:

 

1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos, values and strategic direction;

2. Holding the Head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its   pupils;

3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

 

The Governing body is made up of 11 Governors:

1 head teacher governor, 1 parent governors (awaiting election result), 1 staff governor, 1 Local Authority governor and 6 co-opted governors. 

 

The Full Governing Body meets at least once each term, we also have 3 committees to consider different aspects of the school in detail. These committees are:

 

  • Care, Culture and Ethos Committee
  • Teaching, Learning and Standards Committee
  • Resources Committee

 

The work that we have completed in our committees:

The Governing Body had a particularly busy year focusing on continuous school improvement and striving towards achieving the Inclusion Quality Mark, a prestigious national award.

 

The Care Culture and Ethos Committee updates the Health and Safety and SEND Policies, monitors and tracks attendance and oversees all aspects of Safeguarding. Mrs Mel McIntyre is the nominated safeguarding Governor, she gives a termly report to the governors about any safeguarding matters and oversees the role of the Safeguarding Lead, Miss Louise Everitt (Headteacher).

 

The Resources Committee looks at the maintenance and development of the school premises, and makes decisions about how the school should use its budget. One of the roles for the governors is reviewing and agreeing school policies, and this year we have considered a number of key policies.

 

The Teaching Learning and Standards committee spends time evaluating the curriculum and discussing key data giving the results of pupil achievement and progress, so that they can be sure that the school is on track to fulfil its ambitious targets for all pupils. This committee continues to focus on “vulnerable groups” of children and looks at how the Pupil Premium and Sports Grants are spent by the school and what impact this has on the childrens' outcomes.

 

Minutes of Governing Body and Committee meetings are public documents you will find them on the Governors’ page of our website or you can ask at the school office if you would like to see any of the minutes of our meetings.

 

Governors Body development plan 2018 - 2019

  • To ensure that  next steps identified in the OfSTED Inspection 14th November 2017 are actioned by the school
  • That priorities highlighted in the School Improvement Plan 2018 - 2019  are closely monitored and evaluated for their impact upon the school.
  • For the Governors to be even more visible to parents (Inclusion Quality Mark Action Plan July 2018)
