Governors

Governors are critical friends who help school to improve.  Our Governors come from all walks of life and have a range of experiences which help make them great at their job.  We have Governors appointed by the Local Authority, Parent Governors, Community Governors and Staff Governors.

Governors meet as an entire body at least once a term.  A number of committees, including Finance and Staffing, School Improvement, Community and Buildings and Health and Safety report into the Full Governing Body the content of their meetings and any decisions taken.

Governors are responsible for ensuring that children at Ingleby Mill are well taught, achieve highly and are happy and safe at school.  They make sure that financial decision making is transparent and carried out according to best value principles.  Governors and staff work alongside each other to determine the future direction of the school and to ensure that the school’s priorities can be achieved.

Governors have been involved recently in ensuring that IT equipment is upgraded and updated (new Apple computers and Android tablets have been purchased, to complement our PC and Netbook hardware).  They have also monitored the progress and achievement of specific groups of learners to ensure that needs are being met. This year individual Governors have undertaken training in Appraisal, Safeguarding and Financial Accountability.

Every March, the Finance and Staffing Committee meet for a Strategic Planning Day where the school budget is planned in great detail alongside the school’s priorities for improvement.  For example, in 2012/2013, Governors decided that there needed to be greater investment in Staff Development.  Funds were allcoated to this area of school improvement and, as a result, all staff have been able to access high quality training.  The impact of this has been that teaching and learning have improved.

Our Governors do a great job and our school wouldn’t be as successful without their time, commitment and willingness to be involved.  Your children’s education matters hugely to them.
