Welcome to Governors Section of the Alwyn Infant School Website
Our Governing Body comprises teachers, parents and people from the local community who are committed to the promotion of high standards of educational achievement.
Role of the Governing Body
The role of the Governing Body is to ensure the school's clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction and help in overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent. The Governing Body holds the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and monitors the impact of targets, policies and the school development plan.
Governors provide the Headteacher with support and advice, drawing on their knowledge and experiences, both from a personal and professional perspective.
Who are the Governing Body?
Governors are committed individuals who give their time and energy, voluntarily, by active participation in Committees and attendance at school events and functions.
Our Governing Body usually meets once a term and there are various committees and working groups who also get together approximately once a term. Our Governing Body has two committees who have delegated powers from the main Governing Body.
