Badgemore School, like every school, has a Governing Body consisting of various categories of unpaid governors (including parents, teachers, the local authority, and the community). Our Full Governing Body meets in full session at least four times a year.
Elected governors serve a four-year term of office, which can be renewed after this period. The Chair of Governors is elected annually. Any parent having a child in school is eligible for nomination as a Parent Governor.
While the headteacher is responsible for day-to-day management of the school and is a member of the Governing Body, the Governing Body as a whole is responsible for raising school standards through three key duties:
- Setting strategic direction
- Ensuring accountability for results
- Acting as a critical friend to the school Head and other staff
We have two Governor Focus Groups, (GFGs) which each meet several times a year in addition to the full Governing Body.
- Standards & Performance GFG
- Resources GFG
They deal with finance, the quality of teaching & learning, development of the school premises and marketing of the school.
All children have talents and skills. Our role is to ensure the school has the resources available to enable those talents and skills to be discovered and developed, enabling each child to fulfil their potential and achieve success.
