Governors

We would like to welcome you to the Governors’ section of our website.

Every school has a governing board which represents the interests of the children, local community and wider public in the running of the school. School governors work with the staff and the Local Authority to help secure the best possible education for the children in the school. We have one governing board for the federation of the Caister Infant with Nursery School, Caister Junior School and Rollesby Primary With Nursery School.

A Curriculum Committee and Finance Committee meet each term and feed in information into the full governing body, which meets six times a year. All governors are welcome and encouraged to participate in all or some of the committees. The committees discuss and question areas of the school management such as staffing, finance, curriculum and premises.

There are three core functions of a governing board as reflected in Ofsted’s inspection criteria:

  • Setting vision, ethos and strategic direction, engaging stakeholders, and ensuring statutory duties are met.
  • Holding heads to account for:
    • teaching, achievement, behaviour and safety
    • challenging and strengthening leadership
    • contributing to school evaluation
  • Ensuring financial solvency and probity with effective management of financial resources, including the Pupil Premium, to raise standards.

If all this sounds somewhat daunting, don’t worry we can call on many experts to provide training and help and explain what all this means.

Being a school governor is a rewarding and fulfilling role, helping to provide a suitable, safe, and exciting environment for learning is critical to giving every child the chance they deserve.

If you are interested in being a school governor please contact the school office.
