The Governing Body is responsible for raising school standards by fulfilling these responsibilities:
- Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
Our Full Governing Body (FGB) meets eight times a year. The Finance, Personnel, Buildings and Health & Safety Committee meets five times a year and other committees meet regularly or on an ad hoc basis. We are volunteers who all share a commitment to improving learning at Great Tew. We represent the school’s main stakeholder groups – parents, staff, Local Authority and the community. Essential training builds on the skills governors arrive with.
Collectively the FGB monitors progress against targets set in the School Development Plan (SDP) – the SDP is at the heart of the school improvement drive. The head teacher, staff and governors identify priorities, key actions and success criteria.
We currently have 13 members of our governing body:
