Governors

Meet your Chair, Jamie Spring

Coming Soon!!! 

The Governing Body

Your School Governing Body is made up of a voluntary group of people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education Our role is not about fundraising, neither is it about cheerleading for the school – though we might do both those things too. Reedings governors are enthusiastic and highly motivated to provide strategic leadership and accountability at Reedings Junior School. The governors appoint the Head Teacher and it is governors who hold the main responsibility for finance in the school; it is also us who work with the Head Teacher to make the tough decisions about balancing resources. Each individual governor at Reedings is a member of the school’s Governing Body, which is established in law as a corporate body. Individual governors may not act independently of the rest of the Governing Body as decisions are the joint responsibility of the full Governing Body. The role of the Governing Body is a strategic one, our key functions are to:

  • set the aims and objectives for the school
  • set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • be a source of challenge and support to the head teacher (a critical friend)

Our Head Teacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the Reedings Governing Body. In order for us to achieve our strategic role, you and your children may well see us regularly in school carrying out visits.
