Governors

Welcome to our Governing Body 


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


We have also provided a Register of Governor Interests and an Annual Statement of Issues for your information.

 

What is a Governing Body?

 

Governors are a voluntary body of people who guide and support the strategic direction of the school. They are members of the school team and their contribution to the running of the school is highly valued.

 

Tealby School Governing Body

The governing body of Tealby School re-constituted with effect from 01/10/2014.

The instrument of government states that the governing body shall consist of:

2 Parent governors (1x Vacancy)

1 Local authority governor

1 Staff governor

1 Headteacher

2 Co-opted governors (3x Vacancies)

 

Governor recruitment

 

Following an interim review of governance the school governing body has decided to increase the number of school governors. As a result, we are now recruiting three new co-opted governors and a parent governor to join the team. 

Whilst the current pandemic is providing a challenging environment, the school is in the early stages of what we believe will be an exciting journey and this is a great opportunity to help shape the school strategy and agenda moving forward.

The current governing body has undertaken a skills audit to identify the skills they feel are important to add to the team and as a result are looking for people who have; creative design, property management and/or educational experience. 

For a pre-application conversation about the role, the school and time commitment required, please contact Charlotte Wright who will arrange a meeting with one of our current governors.

We are especially keen to recruit from our Parent community and are excited to also be looking for a Parent governor to join the team. Parent governors have an important role to play on the governing bodies as they have a unique viewpoint, through their own eyes and their children, the consumers point of view.

As a parent governor you will be able to express this viewpoint and be part of the team ensuring the good functioning of the school leadership but also developing the school ethos and drive for continuous improvement in educational standards.

This is a hands off role as governors are not expected to be involved in the day-to-day running of the school.

If we receive more than one application then we will run an election as in accordance with good governance standards.

For a pre-application conversation about the role, the school and time commitment required, please contact Charlotte Wright who will arrange a meeting with one of our current governors.
