Belle Vue Primary School

Governing Body

The Governing Body

 

The Governors of Belle Vue Primary School are elected as a legal requirement for the school to be effective and successful. 

 

The Governing Body is Chaired by Alison Evans, and the vice chair is Paul Thompson.

 

Circle Model Of Governance

 

Belle Vue Primary School Governing Body operates a circle model of governance where the governing body works as a 'whole team' without any committees, and meets every half term, or more if required. This means that governors have up to date information regarding the school, and can offer timely support and challenge, as well as act should the need arise.  Throughout the year senior leaders may be asked to give presentations on subjects or priorities.

 

The governing body may commission assignments or projects arising from the business of any meeting which will be recorded in the minutes. The governing body will also at times delegate monitoring activities to either individual or pairs of members. This delegation could relate to statutory functions or to priorities identified in the School Improvement Plan (SIP). Any delegated decisions will be reported back to the Full Governing Body (FGB).

 

Link governors are assigned to monitor subjects which have been identified as strategic priorities in the School Improvement Plan (SIP), as well as: Safeguarding, SEND and Health & Safety, and Finance.

 

There is an established Pay Panel, and provision is also made for governors to form committees to deal with Pupil Discipline and Exclusion Staff Dismissal; Barring of a Parent from the School Premises; Applications for Special Leave; Complaints; Grievances; Pay Appeals; and the Headteacher's Performance Review.
