Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

 

There are up to twelve members of the school governing body, some elected, some appointed. Their responsibilities include setting the annual budget, maintaining the site and buildings, agreeing general policies and strategic planning. Their responsibilities do not include the internal organisation and day to day running of the school, which is the responsibility of the Headteacher, although he is fully supported in this role by the governors.

The governing body meets at least once a term. There are two sub-committees of the governing body that meet on a regular basis according to need.  These are the Resources (which includes Finance and HR) and Teaching & Learning Committees.  By working in partnership with the Headteacher, staff, parents and the Local Education Authority, the School Governors help to ensure that Wymondley School provides the right learning environment for our pupils. The term of office for all governors is four years, with the exception of the Headteacher. Current members of the governing body are as follows:
