Roles & Responsibilities

The Vine School Governors work in a number of ways to support the school. The Full Governing Body (FGB) meets each half term to discuss the ongoing life of the school and also to plan for the future. Each governor also serves on one of a number of committees:

  • Strategic (Compromising the Chair of Governors, Chair of Committees plus Headteacher)
  • Resources (Personnel, Finance, Property and Health & Safety)
  • Teaching and Learning

Each committee agrees its own work plan for the year to cover such aspects of school life as recruiting new staff, setting the budget, reviewing Child Protection procedures as well as developing a wide range of policies and reviewing procedures.

The key responsibilties of the Governing Body are:

  • To determine the aims and values of the school for the benefit of the pupils
  • To lead the strategic planning for the school, set targets for improvement and monitor progress
  • To be active in monitoring the strengths and weaknesses of the school
