Welcome to our Governors’ section
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.
All schools in England have a Governing Body, made up of individual Governors, which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. The Governing Body sets the vision, aims and objectives for the school. It sets the policies and targets for achieving these aims and objectives. The Governing Body also monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards the achievement of the vision, aims and objectives. The Governors appoint the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher. They hold the main responsibility for finance, and work with the Headteacher to make decisions about balancing resources needed against the budget allocated by the Local Authority. The Governors act as a ‘critical friend’: to support, to challenge, to ask questions, and ultimately to represent the school community.
The Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the Governing Body.
The Governing Body of Glastonbury Thorn is made up of volunteers who are interested in the continued progress of the school and in ensuring the best possible education for the children in our care. The Governors work in close partnership with the Headteacher, Staff and the Local Authority.
The Governing Body is organised into three committees:
Our Full Governing Body meets at least three times a year and our three committees meet at least once a term.
