Bartley C of E Junior School

School Governance

Role of the Governing Body

School governance is a strategic element of Bartley Junior School’s management structure. We focus on three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and direction
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of the staff
  • Oversight of the financial performance of the school, making sure its money is well spent

We operate as a “flat structure” governing body, which means that all decisions are made jointly by all members of the governing body and we meet monthly.  

Who we are (constitution of the governing body)

The governing body is comprised of the following members:
