Governance

The Essendine Governing Body is made up of a team of volunteers both from within and outside the school community. The governing body focuses on the long-term strategic development and improvement of the school; this includes promoting the effective management of the school, policy making, staff appointments and ensuring the school’s budget is planned well and spent wisely.

 

The full governing body meets at least three times a year. We have two sub committees which also meet 3 times a year to discuss issues in more depth. They are the Finance Committee and Curriculum  Committee.

 

The Finance Committee is responsible for ensuring the school budget is spent wisely, the maintenance of the school ground, health and safety issues and the well-being of the school staff.

 

The Curriculum  Committee is responsible for the quality of teaching and learning, assessment, pupil personal development, behaviour, welfare  and the school curriculum.
