School governors have a varied and important role to help the school run effectively. They have 3 core functions:
The governor role is strategic rather than operational. Governors don’t get involved with the day to day running of a school, instead they support and challenge the school’s leadership team to drive school improvement. This role of both supporting and challenging the school leadership is why governors are sometimes referred to as “critical friends”.
Here at CCI, our governors meet together as a full governing body (FGB) once per term. Some responsibilities of the Governing Body are also delegated to the Ethos Committee and to individual governors who act in specific roles on behalf of the FGB. The chair and vice chair of the FGB, along with appropriate additional governors form a Strategic Group to discuss and address any topics which are not able to be addressed in the wider forum.
Christ Church C of E VC Infant School is interested to hear from you if you're interested in being a governor.
Our Governing Body is a diverse groups of individuals, working together to provide strategic leadership and accountability to the school. We are the critical friend of the school, using our wide range of knowledge and skills to deliver the key functions of the Governing Body:
As a group of volunteers, we work with the school to uphold CCI’s vision and values. The nature of the role is that new vacancies arise regularly, so if you'd be interested, we'd love to hear from you! You do not need any previous knowledge or experience in the school environment – a strong Governing Body has a broad range of skills, so whatever your background, if you are willing to get involved and contribute your time then we would love to hear from you. Being a Governor is interesting and rewarding, providing an opportunity to impact the effectiveness of our school and raising our school standards.
