Governing Body

A warm welcome from our Co Chairs of Governors, Mrs Serena Fowler and Mr Sam Nicholls.

The Governing Body of Nutfield Church (C of E) Primary School shall consist of 14 Governors drawn from the wider community that the school covers including parents, staff, the local churches, Southwark Diocesan Board of Education and the Local Authority.  The individual members bring a diversity of knowledge and experience to our school.

The three core functions of the Governing Body are:

Setting strategic direction

  • Clarity of vision and ethos
  • Meeting statutory deadlines
  • Engaging stakeholders

Creating robust accountability

  • For teaching, achievement, behaviour and safety
  • Strengthening school leadership
  • Performance managing the Headteacher
  • Contributing to school self-evaluation

Ensuring financial probity

  • Solvency and effective financial management
  • Use of Pupil Premium and other resources to overcome barriers to learning

The Governing Body works in partnership with our Headteacher, the staff, parents, Local Authority and the Diocese towards the continuing improvement in standards and achievements at our school.

The full Governing Body meets at least once, normally twice, a term. Much of the work is carried out through the two main committees, Leadership & Management and Teaching, Learning & Assessment covering Human Resources, Finance, Health and Safety, Premises, Curriculum, and Admissions. Both committees meet at least once a term and report to the full Governing Body. Every Governor is a member of at least one committee.

All the classes in our school have a Class Governor attached to them; the Class Governor visit their allocated class and work with the Class Teacher. The Class Governor will remain with their allocated class as the class progresses through the school to enable continuity.

Some Governors have specific responsibility for certain areas such as Child Protection, Special Needs, Early Years, and Governor training. This allows the nominated Governor to focus on a particular area, work closely with the relevant staff, and feed back to the full Governing Body.

Governors are expected to visit the school regularly to get to know the staff and pupils and observe our school at work. The visiting Governor reports back to the full Governing Body to help with the strategic role and future direction for our school.

Every year Governors, staff, representatives from the PTFA, representative volunteers and the School Council meet to work together to plan the future developments of our school.
