What do Halley Governors Do?

Governors make collective decisions as part of the Governing Body. The main purpose of the Governing Body at Halley is to raise the educational standards and performance of the school by supporting the work of the Headteacher and school staff. Governors ensure that the school runs effectively, that high quality teaching and learning is happening throughout the school, that the budget is spent wisely and that Halley provides good value for money.

The Governing Body makes strategic decisions on how the school is run and is answerable to parents, the wider community and most importantly the children who attend Halley. The management of the school remains the responsibility of the Headteacher.

The Governors are responsible for:

  • Appointing the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher and ensuring the implementation of key personnel policies and procedures
  • Managing the school's budget
  • Determining aims, policies and priorities for the school
  • Monitoring and evaluating the work of the school and setting targets
  • Ensuring high levels of attendance and good standards of pupil behaviour
  • Ensuring that all children in the school have access to a broad and balanced curriculum which is suitable for their age, aptitude and ability and which prepares them for adult life
  • Ensuring the health and safety of pupils and staff

The Governing Body meets four times each year, once in the Autumn and Spring terms and twice in the Summer term. The Finance and General Purpose Committee also meets four times each year to discuss in more depth issues relating to finance, personnel and premises. The committee members make recommendations to the full Governing Body.

Governors' Action Plan

Each Governor is allocated an area of responsibility in the school. They are responsible for visiting the school and liaising with a key member of staff, for finding out in more detail about this aspect of the school's work and for reporting back to the full Governing Body.
