Park Hill Thorns Federation Governing Body

Governing bodies act as a corporate body, taking a strategic role in the development of the school, supporting and challenging the leadership team.

 

The Governors have just decided to stop having separate committees and will now hold monthly full Governor meetings. The Terms of Reference for this are currently being re-written and will be published here once finalised. For now the committee terms of reference are included as these will be incorporated into the new set. A Pay committee still exists, as does the Strategic group.

 

The strategic development of the school is proposed in an annual improvement plan, building on strengths and assigning resources to develop the priorities identified. Individual governors are linked to each priority and work with the school leadership team to monitor and review progress.

 

Governors are responsible for agreeing the annual budget submission to the local authority and support the executive head teacher in the management of public funds.

 

The Chair of Governors is Mr Patrick Arben who can be contacted via the school office.
