Govenors & Duties

Tweseldown Infants Governing Board has a firm commitment to the school and we pride ourselves on the school's friendly and loving ethos. Pupil happiness, safety and quality of provision are always at the centre of our decision making.

Our Governing Board is constituted for fifteen members which is made up of three Parent Governors, one Local Authority Governor, one Staff Governor, our Head Teacher and up to nine co-opted Community Governors.  We strive to have a broad spectrum of experience across the Governing Board to further inform our decisions.

As Governors we are responsible for the strategic direction of the school and we are here to support and challenge the Senior Leadership Team by being a critical friend.  We aim to create a good relationship with the SLT and the whole school community through a mutual relationship of trust and respect. 

We hold regular meetings to review policies, monitor targets and results, oversee the financial performance of the school and to discuss aims and objectives linked to the School Development Plan.

We are responsible for the Head Teacher's performance management reviews, and also for holding the Head Teacher to account for pupil outcomes.

Our Governors are committed to being visible within the school and we attend both formal and informal events at the school such as parents evenings, sports day and the Christmas Dinner.
