Coppice Valley Community Primary School

Respect, Pride, Choice

Governors Information

The day to day management of this school is the responsibility of the Head teacher but the governing body is responsible for overseeing all aspects of school life and has three statutory responsibilities:

  • Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the Head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

Our governing body comprises nine members. This is made up of two parent governors, one Local Authority governor, one staff governor, four co-opted governors and the Head Teacher. All of our governors are volunteers. We work closely with the Head teacher to achieve our shared vision of pride, respect and choice for every pupil.  The governing body has a range of different skills and experience and we all share a passion for the school.

The governing body meets 6 times a year to receive and discuss reports and ask questions of the Head teacher, senior staff and fellow governors. Minutes of these meetings (minus any confidential minutes) are available from the school office if required.

The Resources Committee meets at least once a term and considers the financial monitoring statements and school budget and long term finance forecast. It considers the end of financial year outturn statement and the annual completion and submission of the Schools Financial Value Standard (SFVS). It reports regularly to the full governing body.

The School Improvement Committee meets once a term. Its responsibilities are to monitor and regularly review pupil performance data, monitor, contribute to and challenge the School Development Plan, support and challenge the development of the school’s curriculum policy and evaluate and review its implementation, to advise the Governing Body on its statutory obligations relating to the curriculum and to provide regular feedback to the full governing body.

To ensure that the governing body meets its strategic responsibilities to the school, governors are also called on to fulfill a range of roles outside our meetings including involvement in recruitment, exclusion, health and safety, policy review, special educational needs and safeguarding. 

This table contains details of the current governing body. None of our members govern at other schools as well as at Coppice Valley.
