Governors attend a meeting of the full governing body at least once per term.
In addition, governors sit on at least one committee. Committees also meet at least once per term.
At Kenmont, our two main committees are the Finance, Personnel and Premises Committee, and the Curriculum and the Community Committee
Governors often make visits to the school, attend school events and may accompany staff and pupils on outings
Governors assist the headteacher in appointing staff. Governors take the lead in appointing the headteacher
Governors attend training courses to develop their effectiveness in the role
The governing body may also appoint Associate Members to enhance the experience or expertise of a committee(s).
Associate Members can attend full governing body meetings but have no voting rights.
If you feel you have skills or experience that could assist the governing body in carrying out its duties, or if you’d like to contact a governor for any other reason, please let the school office know and an informal conversation can be arranged with the headteacher and/or other governors.
And if you want to help in other ways the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) meets on the first Thursday of every month, focusing mainly on fundraising for the school.
So please get involved – your school needs you!
