Governors have three main roles:
- To provide strategic direction for the school
- To act as a critical friend to the headteacher
- To ensure accountability
Governors meet at Appletree once a term to discuss the management of the school. The governing body also has 3 committees which meet once a term. These committees focus on different aspects of the school’s management:
Learning & Development Committee: governors who attend this meeting look at the teaching and learning that goes on in the school
Finance, Buildings, Staffing, Health & Safety Committee: governors who attend this meeting focus on the financial management of the school, the staffing structure and the maintenance of the building, and how well the school manages health & safety.
Collaboration Committee: governors who attend this meeting look at how well the federation with Appletree Nursery in Lancaster is working.
If you are interested in attending a governor meeting to see what happens, you are more than welcome. Ask in the main office for the date and time of the next meeting.
