Governors

Governing Body’s Annual Statement 16-17

Governing Body working arrangements to support preparation for Ofsted 
Understanding changes to data and assessment systems nationally
To provide a level of challenge and support to the school.
To support new staffing appointments effectively.
To increase the effectiveness of the subcommittees.

The impact of the Governing Body on the school was: 

The school was well supported during the Ofsted Inspection on 10th Jan 2017 to achieve a Good outcome. “You and your governors         know the strengths and weaknesses of the school well. Governors have a clear understanding of, and are knowledgeable about, the            key priorities for improvement. Recent changes have further enhanced their skills, sharpness and ability to challenge and support                 school leaders.”
LA training and the work of subcommittees, increased and sharpened the focus on progress data. This resulted in Governors and the         being more effective and knowledgeable as a direct result.
Governors knowledge of new data and assessment systems enables them to provide further support and challenge to school                         provision.
Governing body members have supported recruitment effectively.
Subcommittees have taken place regularly and the impact of these meetings has resulted in very proactive working relationships eg             the audit carried out by the H&S committee have been collaborative. The regular monitoring of the SDP has ensured that we are all             focussed on the same outcomes for our pupils at Whitehouse.
