Governing Body

Hello! We are the school governors at Crawley Green Infant School.

What are Governors for?

Our aim is to ensure that the children at Crawley Green are able to achieve to the best of their ability, and have a wonderful experience of school.

What do Governors do?

We have three main responsibilities:

  • Ensure the school has a clear vision, ethos and direction
  • Hold the leadership team to account for the children’s education
  • Oversee the school’s financial performance – making sure money is well spent

How does Governing work?

Governors get involved with the school by visiting at least once a term. We also attend regular committee meetings* alongside the Headteacher and other staff members. At these meetings we:

  • Oversee financial decisions
  • Look at data around children’s educational progress, attendance, etc. and ask what the school is doing to improve this
  • Read and approve/amend school policies e.g. around safeguarding, employment, etc.
  • Ask questions about various aspects of how the school is being run
  • Support the Headteacher in carrying out the school’s vision and ethos

* Governors are expected to attend around 3 evening meetings per term which are generally from 6pm-8pm. You need to be able to make this commitment.

Benefits of being a Governor

Governors are not paid but there are many benefits. Firstly, you can help to shape your school and work to raise standards. But also –

  • Gain experience in strategic and financial planning
  • Learn to set aims and objectives to reach your goals
  • Work within a team and learn how to debate and challenge in a supportive way
  • Discover more about the UK education system

It will look great on your CV!

Who are the Governors?

The Governing body is made up of a combination of parents, staff, local people and a member of the council.

Join us!

We would love more parents to join our school governing body. Your children’s education and wellbeing are at the heart of what governing is all about – so your perspective is crucial. Your close connection with the school means you have so much to contribute.
