The Structure of our Governing Body
Our Governing Body is chaired by Katy Toms, who is the Local Authority Governor. We have two Vice Chairs, Jennie Crompton who is the Vice Chair for Micheldever School and Lucy Thomas who is the Vice Chair for Barton Stacey School. The Governing Body is made up of seventeen people: the Executive Headteacher, Mrs Hilary Brewster, the vicar of Barton Stacey Parish, Reverend Mark Bailey, a staff governor, three foundation governors, a local authority governor, two parent governors and seven Co-Opted Governors. We currently have 4 vacancies.
Full Governing Body
The full governing body meets every half term. The agendas for these meetings are issued in advance, and are set by the Executive Headteacher and the Chair of Governors. Items are also added by the sub-committees. Many agenda items are standing items and appear on every agenda. There are legal and Local Authority deadlines which have to be met for decisions. These meetings have a paid clerk who advises on the law and produces the minutes.
There are three sub-committees which meet regularly. These meetings are timed to feed into the full governing body meetings so take place approximately two weeks before the full governing body meeting The Full Governing Body Meeting, and necessary items are discussed and ratified. Each sub-committee has its own Terms of Reference.
The Curriculum, Standards and Ethos Committee is chaired by Jennie Crompton. This monitors Teaching and Learning, spirituality and ethos of our school.
The Management Committee is chaired by Katy Toms. This supports and monitors Finance and Personnel matters and Health and safety matters.
The Pay Committee consists of three governors who make decisions on recommendations about staff salaries. This committee advises the Management Sub-Committee.
As well as these sub committees, there are committees which only meet if there is a need. These include the Discipline Committee and the Appeals Committee.
