The Governing Body

Brady's Governing Body supports the school and the Head Teacher. We aim to ensure the school has clear aims and values that are championed by the whole school community. All the work we do has pupil achievement and progress and school improvement at its heart. We work with the Head Teacher and staff in raising standards of achievement, establishing high expectations and promoting effective teaching and learning so that every pupil achieves to the best of his or her ability.

The Governing Body has a role to play in evaluating how the school is progressing and in this role we aim to strike a balance between supporting and challenging. We recognise and celebrate the achievements of the school and we provide support and promote encouraging strategies to bring about improvement. We are accountable to the whole school community for the performance of the school.
 

When do we meet and how do we work?

Our full Governing Body meets at least once a term. In order to delegate and share the responsibilities of the Governing Body effectively, we have two committees which meet separately from the full Governing Body once every term also. These committees are; Leadership and Management (which includes Finance, Personnel and Premises) and Teaching and Learning.  In addition to these meetings we hold an informal Strategic meeting termly to discuss longer term strategic direction topics.

Every Governor at Brady takes on a Link Governor role which allows individuals to focus on a key area in school (identified in the School Improvement Plan), for example, Literacy, Numeracy, Phases, Inclusion. Link Governors get to know one area of the school in more detail and reports from each link area enable the Governing Body to learn more about the school and provide information which supports strategic decisions around school improvement.

The Constitution of Governing Bodies of Maintained Schools (August 2015)
Publication of Governor’s Details and the Register of Interests

Governors hold an important public office and their identity should be known to their school and wider communities. In the interests of transparency, a governing body should publish on its website up-to-date details of its governance arrangements in a readily accessible form. This should include:
  • the structure and remit of the governing body and any committees, and the full names of the chair of each; • for each governor who has served at any point over the past 12 months:
  • their full names, date of appointment, term of office, date they stepped down (where applicable), who appointed them (in accordance with the governing body’s instrument of government),
  • relevant business and pecuniary interests (as recorded in the register of interests) including:
  • governance roles in other educational institutions;
  • any material interests arising from relationships between governors or relationships between governors and school staff (including spouses, partners and close relatives); and
  • their attendance record at governing body and committee meetings over the last academic year.

Governing bodies should also publish this information for associate members, making clear whether they have voting rights on any of the committees to which they have been appointed.

Governing bodies should make it clear in their code of conduct that this information will be published on their governors and any associate members. Any governor failing to provide information to enable the governing body to fulfil their responsibilities may be in breach of the code of conduct and as a result be bringing the governing body into disrepute. In such cases the governing body should consider suspending the governor.
