Governors

The governing body of Giles Junior School is composed of parents, representatives of the local community and the local authority, and school staff. Governors have legal powers, duties and responsibilities. Our role is to work strategically with the school’s senior leadership team, challenging and questioning the school, identifying priorities for improvement and ensuring that these are implemented and that we achieve value for money from our budget. We also work with all staff to provide support and encouragement, recognising and celebrating the school’s achievements. The governing body has committees and working parties to allow us to focus on specific areas. Some of us have individual responsibilities as well covering key areas, such as curriculum subjects and pupil safeguarding . We have three main committees:

  • Children and Families – welfare matters and community relationships
  • Curriculum and Standards – pupil achievement and attainment
  • Resources – finance, premises and personnel.

We have a working party looking at the strategic development of the school. Being a governor is both challenging and rewarding. We need to keep abreast of the continuing local and national changes to education policies and guidance so that we can make a valuable contribution to school improvement. As governors we appreciate how much time and energy is given to the school by its dedicated staff. The Chair of governors can be contacted via admin@gilesjm.herts.sch.uk.
