What do the Governors at Brenzett CEP School do?
As Governors (since 01 September 2017) we are part of a larger body of Governors across the Joint Local Governing Body (JLGB) of Brenzett and Kingsnorth CEPs.
Governance is about overseeing the success of the school. It is about agreeing priorities and monitoring progress towards them.
Governance is about providing constructive support and challenge to leaders and managers to enable them to do their job to the best of their ability.
All governors have an equal say in the running of the school and no one body or governor has more influence than any other.
The Local Governing Body has a range of powers and duties laid down by various Education Acts and the scheme of delegation given to it by Aquila. In the main, these responsibilities relate to:
- Setting and monitoring targets that promote high standards of educational achievement
- Setting the strategic framework within which the school operates
- Management of the school’s budget
- Ensuring that the curriculum for the school is balanced and broadly based
Governors adopt, review and monitor a range of policies that govern the operation of the school including Health and Safety, Behaviour, Curriculum and Performance Management.
