 Governor Impact 2017-2018

Strong governance is a key part of a successful school.  The governing board of Hill View School has three core functions.  These are:

  • Setting the strategic direction
  • Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school
  • Ensuring financial health, probity and values for money

In additional to the normal Governing Board meetings, over the last year the Governors have supported the school in these areas by:

Setting the strategic direction

  • Acting as a critical friend during the implementation of GDPR and undertaking a review of our readiness
  • Attending training to ensure knowledge is up to date and current in:
    • Safeguarding
    • Government Finance
    • GDPR
    • Special Needs
    • Educational Policy

Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school

  • School development priorities setting.
  • Authorising the appointment of a School Improvement Advisor and meeting with her annually to set and review Head Teacher Performance Management targets
  • Undertaking monitoring visits during SATs week to ensure the correct administration of the tests are followed.
  • Visited school and listened to 'Pupil voice'.

Ensuring financial health, probity and values for money

  • Regularly attending Finance meetings with the local authority to ensure that the school is able to set a balanced budget.
  • Providing independent auditors to review the unofficial school funds
  • Overseeing and authorising large capital project work
  • Ensuring licence agreements with third parties on site do not detrimentally impact the school in the future and that any charges made reflect the true cost to the school and do not impact on the school budget.
