SPRINGWATER SCHOOL GOVERNING BODY STRUCTURE & REMIT

The Full Governing Body of Springwater School meets at regular intervals and at least once every half term.

All members of the Full Governing Body have voting rights with the exception of the one Associate Member.

The Core Functions of the Governing Body are:

  • Ensuring clarity of Vision, Ethos and Strategic Direction.
  • Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the School.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure it's money is well spent.

The Finance and Resources Sub - Committee has not met this year as all business has been conducted through the full Board.

TERMS OF REFERENCE – approved at the Full Governing Body Meeting 10th September 2019

The Governing Body or committees may establish other groups such as a working party or a task group, to look at a specific matter. These are less formal than committees and do not have delegated authority. Any such group must report back to the Governing Body or originating committee on its work and is usually disbanded once its work has been completed.
