The aim of the Morgans’ Governing Board is to support the school to deliver its vision of building learning power in order for our children to develop as lifelong learners and be the best they can be.
The three core functions of the full governing body are:
ensuring the clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school;
holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;
overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
School governors work on a voluntary basis. Our board is made up of co-opted governors, parent governors, staff governors and Local Authority governors. We also have associate governors who do not have voting rights at Full Governing Board meetings.
There are two Full Governing Board meetings a term, either in the evening from 7.00-9.00, or in the mornings during school time, from 8.30 to 10.30. Meetings are focussed on how we achieve our three core functions, with improving outcomes for pupils at Morgans driving everything we do.
We have limited our number of committees, replaced by a number of working groups who collaborate between meetings reporting back at regular intervals. This has reduced the number of meetings and allowed for more efficient information sharing and more timely decision-making. The Governing Board and Head Teacher work closely together at all times.
