This is the first of our regular termly communications and we hope that you will find it helpful in keeping you up to date with what is happening at the school and with the work of the Governing Body. The governing body of Bere Regis school actively runs the school with the Headteacher and the staff. Together, we determine the strategic direction and policies and practice of the school and monitor standards and achievement.
Appointing the Headteacher and staff and all staffing matters.
Managing the school’s budget.
Monitoring and evaluating the curriculum and standards of attainment.
Looking after the school building and planning for the new school.
Making school policies, plans and targets.
To do this we all meet together every half term. We receive a Headteacher’s report once a term in order for us to ask questions, debate issues and make decisions. In between the full governors’ meetings, various committees meet and work on issues regarding staffing, finance and premises as well as religious ethos and curriculum. In addition, we have working parties or panels from time to time looking at areas such as admissions, exclusions and communication.
Over the coming terms, we plan to introduce all the governors to you but thought we’d start with those who aren’t quite so well known as they’re not current parents.
