Meet the Governors
The Role of the Governing Body
The role of the Governing Body is to conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. We do this by:
• Providing a strategic direction for the work and improvement of the school
• Supporting, monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of the school (the ‘critical friend’ role)
• Ensuring accountability for the standards achieved and the quality of education.
All governors have skills which are utilised by the governing body. Governors are split into two areas; the Leadership, Management and Effectiveness Committee (LME) look after the 'business' aspects of school. The Pupil Wellbeing, Progress and Achievement Committee (PWPA) focus more on the child. Mervyn George is the Chair of Governors. Isabel Geerlings is the Chair of the LME committee and Julie James is the Chair of the PWPA committee.
Standards of Governance
Governors are fully aware of the obligations and responsibilities that their roles bring, and are constantly looking to improve the quality, standards, efficiency and effectiveness with which they fulfil these responsibilities.
The constantly changing nature, law and requirements of school governance are recognised to place an obligation on school governors to be adequately trained and kept up to date. If you become a governor at Cadbury Heath we will work with you to train you so that you are able to develop your knowledge and understanding of the role.
Please enquire at the school office if you are interested in becoming a governor or how you can make a contribution.
