The board of governors work alongside the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to meet the education needs of the pupils at Wormley School in a secure and safe environment.

The key roles of our board of governors are:

  • to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school
  • to hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • to oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure it’s money is well spent

Our board of governors is made up of 15 members with different skills, knowledge and experience:

  • parents and staff governors who are elected by parents and staff associated with the school
  • foundation and Local Authority governors who are appointed by the Church of England and Local Authority
  • co-opted governors who are members of the general public with an interest in education and are appointed by the board of governors

The Instrument of Government link provided at the top of the page details the composition of the board.

All governors are appointed in a voluntary unpaid capacity for a term of four years and undertake regular training to ensure that they contribute effectively to the conduct of the school.

The business of the school is progressed by the whole board of governors working together in the best interests of the school’s pupils. This work is undertaken through the formal meetings of the board of governors, its sub committees and by visits to the school. The board has two sub committees which look at key aspects of the school and report back each term to the board of governors:

– resources committee – reviews personnel, finance and premises
– school improvement committee – reviews curriculum, pastoral work and pupil achievement
