Every school in England has a Governing Board which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. A key role of the board is to act as a ‘critical friend’: to support, to challenge, to ask questions and ultimately to represent the whole school community. The Governing Board of Dogsthorpe Infant School works in close partnership with the headteacher, staff and advisers responsible for the education provision at the Local Authority.

 

Whilst the headteacher is responsible for the day to day running of our school, its governors are involved in a whole range of discussions and decisions such as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance. This ensures the school continues to function well and maintains its extensive programme of academic and social objectives.  

Following statutory guidance from the Department for Education the Board of Governors was reconstituted in April 2015 and a new Chairperson and Vice Chair elected at its first meeting. 

The school underwent a complete revision of  its ethos and vision and very experienced governors and educationalists joined the board. Each with their own particular skills that would best serve the long-term plan of the school and more effectively support the school's teaching and learning communities. 

 

The Governing Body presently consists of;

  • The Headteacher

  • One L.A. appointed governor

  • One staff governor

  • Three parent governors

  • Five co-opted governors
