Governance

The governing body of Stoneraise School came into effect on 1/2/2015. It consists of 12 governors: 4 Parent, 5 Co-opted, 1 Local Authority, 1 Staff and 1 Head Teacher.

 

The governing body provides support and gives challenge to the School Leadership Team (SLT). They help make strategic decisions for the school for the benefit of all stakeholders.

Periodically, the governors meet as smaller sub-committees to explore areas of school decision making in more detail. Following these meetings, reports are presented back to the full governing body for ratification. 

Our sub-committees are as follows:

  • Finance and Staffing - this group works to ensure that the school runs within its means: setting the budget and holding the SLT to account over spending decisions.

  • Curriculum - this sub-committee works to ensure that the children at Stoneraise School receive a high quality, broad and balanced curriculum and that excellent standards in teaching and learning are maintained.

  • General Purposes - these governors ensure that the school building and overall site is of the highest standards in terms of health and safety.

Individual governors are also responsible for holding monitoring visits which are linked to different areas of school life including: staffing, finance, safeguarding, teaching and learning, SEND and health and safety.

Stoneraise School governors seek to abide by a Code of Conduct which is adopted annually. To view the document, please click here.

If you would like any further information on school governance, please contact the clerk to the governing body, Mary Davidson. This can be done either by email (use the 'Contact Us' tab) or letter.
