What does the Governing Body do?
They are charged with the responsibility of working with the Headteacher and staff to ensure that pupils at The Lea receive an excellent standard of education. Together, they set the strategic direction and ethos of the school and help to monitor progress towards our goals. They are involved in reviewing the performance of the school and set policies on a variety of issues that impact our pupils, from homework to attendance. And, of course, there is the financial oversight – determining how best to use the funds that are available to the school in a way that will be most effective at achieving our aims as a school.
Our Governing Body
The Governing Body at The Lea consists of up of 15 individuals, including parents, local authority and co-opted members, staff and the Headteacher. They each bring distinctive perspectives and skills to the Governing body, enabling us to draw on a wide variety of talents and networks for the benefit of the school.
The Full Governing Body meet at least once a term, and the Teaching, Learning and Curriculum Committee, and Resources Committee meet every half-term.
The Chair of Governors is Mrs Beth Featherby. You can contact Beth via the school office or email her at email@example.com
Minutes from the Full Governing Body meetings are available from the School Office.
