The governors are pleased to be able to report another successful year throughout all aspects of the life of the school. This success is achieved by the commitment and dedication of the students, teachers and support staff together with the support given by parents/carers and we congratulate them all.
Governing Bodies no longer have a legal duty to tell parents about what they’ve done for the school. However, Governors at Endon High School believe that it is both appropriate and important to tell you what our role is, and what we have been doing. For example, governors monitor the school’s budget and ensure that resources are allocated properly.
From the link on your right, we shall be attaching the termly minutes of the Full Governors’ meetings. This is a public document, and you have the right to see what work the governors have been doing to support the school. I hope you find them to be informative.
If you would like to contact the governors, please do so, through the Clerk to Governors, Mrs Sawyer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
There are on going changes and challenges ahead for education; the governing body will continue to meet them and to do all they can to ensure the school and its pupils maintain their high standards
The Governing Body, with the Headteacher, has overall responsibility for the running of the school. Governing bodies have three core strategic functions:
No special qualifications are needed and the most important thing is to have a keen interest in the school and be prepared to play an active part in the governing body’s work. However, we would like to know the skills of governors and ask that the attached proforma is completed and returned together with the nomination form. Training is available for all governors and this governing body has an expectation that those new to being a governor, attend free induction training.
The enclosed sheet summarises the circumstances under which someone cannot serve as a governor. In addition, parents/carers who have paid employment in the school for 500 or more hours per academic year or who are elected members of the Local Authority, are not eligible to stand in these elections.
If you are interested in becoming a governor at Endon High School please complete the enclosed nomination form and return it to the school. You may also include a short personal statement to support your nomination, which should be no longer than 250 words.
