The role of the Governing Body

The governing body is responsible for the conduct of its school, and must promote high standards of

educational achievement at the school. It is the accountable body and as such:

• Provides a strategic view of the school by establishing a vision and setting the purpose and

aims of the school within an agreed policy framework.

• It appoints and performance manages the head teacher, agreeing the school improvement

strategy, which includes setting statutory targets with supporting budgets and staffing

structures.

• Monitors and evaluates the work of the school by reviewing the performance of the head

teacher, the effectiveness of the policy framework, progress towards targets, and the

effectiveness of the school improvement strategy.

• Signs off and contributes to the self-evaluation process and responds to school improvement

service and Ofsted reports as necessary.

• In addition, it holds the head teacher to account for the performance of the school and

ensures that parents are involved, consulted and informed as appropriate, with information

to the community being made available as required.

 

Meet our Governing Body (excluding Staff governors)

 

Claire Baldock, Co-opted Governor

I am a qualified accountant, which I feel is a useful skill to bring to the Governing Body and allows me

to effectively assist in the schools resources planning. I became a governor as I feel very strongly

about the quality of learning and experiences that children receive during their time at Bawnmore

(one of my own children currently attends). I have been a parent governor at Bawnmore

since May 2013 and I am also the Chair of the Resources Committee.

 

Judith Hicks, Local Authority (Chair)

I have extensive experience in the areas of learning and development and human resources and I am

a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. I have worked at

Director level in the private sector and have gained further experience working in Further Education

as a Learning & Development Consultant. In addition I work for Warwickshire County Council, as

an Associate Trainer for Governor Development Services. I have been a governor at Bawnmore

since 2008 and in that time have been a parent governor and a local authority governor. I am

currently the chair of governors at Bawnmore, a post I have held for four years.

 

 

Bethan Cullen, Co-opted Governor (Vice-chair)

My day-to-day role is as a Marketing Director for the National Association of School Business

Management and prior to this I have held senior roles in the commercial sector across marketing

and operations. My mother was a primary head teacher and I saw the extensive changes and

demands taking place in the education sector and, after seeing those changes I wanted to support my

local school. I have been a community governor at Bawnmore since November 2011.

I took on the role of Vice-chair in September 2013 and I am currently the Chair of the Performance

and Standards Committee. I hope that my current role allows me to assist the school and provide

insight into the changing education sector. I also have a daughter at Bawnmore, who has just started

in Year 1.

 

Daniel Tilley, Parent Governor

I bring project management experience from working within the financial services sector, with a

particular enthusiasm for working with data and developing a high performance culture.

I have recently become a parent governor, which was prompted following my son starting at the

school. My interest in becoming a governor comes from a desire to ensure that the school is

performing to its highest standard and is giving something back to the local community.
