May we offer a very warm welcome to the Governor pages.
Strong governance is one of the many essential aspects that are required for any school to develop. We are all volunteers who are using our personal and professional skills to help the school leadership make Winton Primary School a great place for your children, the staff and parents.
The governors are all local people; some are parents of children at the school, there are staff members, business people, education specialists and finance specialists. Governors are appointed on the basis of their skills, and whether they have the knowledge and understanding to be able to make a worthwhile contribution towards the school's future growth.
The role of the governing board covers 3 broad responsibilities - they agree and plan out the future strategy of the school, they are responsible for the professional challenge and support of the school leadership team and they also have an oversight to ensure all of the school's money is spent wisely.
They are also answerable for ensuring the school engages properly with the children, parents, the local community and the wider school sector.
The board is divided into the Resources Committee (RC) and the School Improvement Committee (SIC). The RC uses business budgeting methods to ensure the money is well spent, and the SIC is responsible for evaluating and monitoring the progress of the children.
