Organisation and resposibility
The Governors of Holly Lodge Girls’ College are responsible for ensuring that the school meets all obligations placed upon it by the Secretary of State for Education. In order to better fulfil them, the governing body is divided into a number of governor committees. The full governing body meets at least once each term, the finance committee also meets at least once each term, all meetings areminuted. The terms of reference of each committee are set out in separate documents.
Being a School Governor
Why do schools need governors?
For some time now local people, volunteering as school governors, have been making important decisions about the way each school is run. It’s an opportunity to have your voice heard and to influence education for the children in Holly Lodge Girls’ College.
Schools have changed. They now make decisions on how to spend their budgets. It’s a big responsibility for those in charge.
What do governors do?
The governors are responsible for making sure the school provides a good quality education. They set the school aims and policies together with the head. The head is responsible for day-to-day management, and is chosen by the governors and works closely with them.
Every school has a governing body. Ours includes:
- Parents elected by other parents of children at the school;
- Representatives appointed by the Local authority
- Members co-opted from the community (including the business community)
- School staff, including the Headteacher
