Governance

Please read Brochure 8 at the bottom of this page.

 

The Governing Body is comprised of parents, staff and members of the community. They work in a strategic role with the staff as 'critical friends' to monitor all aspects of the school's life: its ethos, curriculum, teaching, sports, arts, staffing, finance, premises, quality of school dinners, plus plenty more areas of school life. It's a great way to get involved at Parkfields

Parkfields School Governing Body

Parkfields School Governing Body was reconstituted in March 2015 and has provision for 17 governors, as follows:

  1. 6 parent governors; (elected by the Parent body)
  2. 1 LA governor; (appointed by the LA)
  3. 1 staff governor; (elected by the Staff)
  4. 1 Headteacher (ex officio);
  5. 6 co-opted governors; (elected by the Governing Body)
  6. 2 foundation governors (appointed by Harlington Area Schools Trust)

The Governing Body has the following structure:

SIG (School Improvement Group) - a committee to which extensive powers are delegated by the Governing Body which meets at least twice a term in addition to Full Governing Body (FGB) meetings and whose principal focus is a continuous drive for whole school improvement. All governors are welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings.

Finance committee - a committee with few delegated powers, which monitors the budget and makes recommendations to SIG and the FGB.

Welfare committee - a committee with few delegated powers, which monitors all aspects of welfare, attendance, behaviour, child protection and the like.

Premises committee - a committee with few delegated powers, which monitors H&S and the condition of the premises, making recommendations on major items of expenditure to SIG.

Pay Review committee - a committee, which decides staff pay following appraisal and which conducts the Headteacher’s appraisal.

Pupil Discipline, general appeals and Pay Review appeals committee - a committee, which hears appeals relating to exclusions, complaints and the like and any appeals from the Pay Committee.
