The Governing Body

The Governing Body is responsible for:

  • Homerton’s vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the Head teacher to account on educational performance and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing financial performance and making sure that money is well spent.

The Governing Body works in partnership with the Head teacher and staff to help provide the best possible learning experiences for all children at the Centre.

Governors fulfil their responsibilities by:

  • Developing and reviewing written policies and procedures to address both statutory requirements and local priorities
  • Delegating responsibility to Committees and/or individual governors
  • Providing input into and review the School Improvement Plan and using this document as a key resource for setting priorities and monitoring impact
  • Using a combination of reports, visits, performance data, other activities and information to monitor the progress of the Centre.

The Governing Body comprises fourteen governors, including the Head teacher, elected parent governors, an elected staff governor, co-opted governors and a governor nominated by the local authority.  The Governing Body meets six times a year in the evening and in addition governors usually serve on either the Resources or the Curriculum Committee, which also meet six times a year.  All governors are appointed for a four-year term.
