Governors

THE MEADOW SCHOOL GOVERNING BODY

The Meadow School governors have the responsibility of raising school standards through their three key roles of:

  • Setting strategic direction
  • ensuring accountability
  • monitoring and evaluating school performance

Ofsted, as part of their monitoring of the school, also include governance in their assessment and The Meadow has a current Ofsted grade of Good - January 2017.  Since the school operates within the Anglian Learning Trust (ALT) who are a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), our effectiveness is also challenged by the policies and systems set up by the Trust to this end.

 

The governance role is strategic, and this means that governors are NOT responsible for day to day operation of the school, since this is the function of the Head Teacher.  The Head Teacher does however have a responsibility to work with the board of governors to set the strategic direction.  The Head Teacher is therefore part of the governing body.
