Governor’s Voice

The Governing Body of Milton  Mount Primary School is comprised of a group of volunteers, both from within the school community (staff and parents) and the wider community, with an interest in education.

The Governing Board’s work focuses on three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding the Headship Team to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Governors work together with the Headship Team, to ensure the best possible education for all the children in our school, enabling them to realise and achieve their potential at each and every stage of their journey, in accordance with our Vision.

The Full Governing Body meets twice per term, with an additional business meeting at the start of each academic year.  The Resources Committee meets termly. These meetings consider the latest performance data and feedback, ensure that all policies and procedures are in place, that the schools finances are being used effectively and appropriately, that relevant audits are taking place, that the schools have the resources required to do their job effectively, that the premises are suitable and that the safeguarding of the children is appropriate.

In addition, governors take on other areas of responsibility which are either subject based e.g. Maths or English, or broader remits e.g. Special Educational Needs or Early Years. There are also working groups set up on a needs basis to consider specific issues that may arise.

Governors visit the school regularly, undertaking learning walks, talking to staff and reporting back to the governing body on the progress they have seen.
