Glebe's

Governing Body

The role of a School Governor is demanding but very rewarding and is a good way to give back to your local community.  Glebe’s Governing Body meet every half term and are responsible for working together with the school at a strategic level to ensure that it delivers a good quality education for all our pupils.

How our Governors challenge school leaders 

  • Help ensure clarity of our vision, values and strategic direction 
  • Hold our headteacher to account for educational performance of the school and our pupils as well as the performance management of staff
  • Oversee financial performance of the school and makes sure our money is well spent
  • Complete regular visits to monitor key aspects of the school's development to provide support and challenge where needed
  • Observe and speak to our pupils in school in order to gain an understanding of the learning, behaviour and well-being of all our pupils 
  • Hearing regularly from members of the staff, both informally during monitoring visits as well as through formal presentations delivered to the Governing Body
