Mitton Manor Primary School

Governance and Financial Information

This page is currently under construction.  Please contact the school if you require any information not available on the website.

The governing body at Mitton Manor meet at least three times every year as a Full Governing Body, where the ongoing business of committees, the governing body and the school are discussed, reported on and where decisions are taken by a majority vote. Most of the work of governors is done at committee level.

 

The Governing Body is led by the Chair, elected by the Governing Body from within its membership, though anyone who works at the school cannot stand for the office. The term of office for the Chair is set to one year. The Chair is supported in their work by a Vice Chair, who may be delegated certain tasks or responsibilities. Certain tasks, including signing off the school budget, can only be done by the Chair. The process for election of chair and vice-chair and their term of office is laid down in the Academy’s Articles of Association.

 

The governors are supported in their work by a Clerk to the Governing Body. The Clerk is remunerated for their work. The Clerk is considered an integral part of the Governing Body, although they are not entitled to vote. Their role is primarily one of providing advice and interpretation on the regulatory and administrative framework in which governor’s work, preparing and distributing minutes and agendas, keeping records and dealing with correspondence.

 

The head teacher of the school is responsible for day-to-day management of the school. The role of the Governing Body is to provide strategic management, and to act as a "critical friend", supporting the work of the head teacher and other staff.

 

Our School has a budget to cover salaries, running costs, maintenance and equipment; the Governing Body is responsible for managing this budget. They can decide how many and what types of staff to employ, which equipment to upgrade or replace and what the priorities are for implementing new strategies and initiatives.

 

Governors must appoint the head teacher, and may be involved in the appointment of other staff.

Governors also have a role in monitoring the school's progress, and in setting annual targets for the school's performance and for the head teacher (and ensuring that the head teacher sets targets for other staff).

 

Our Governing Body uses a committee structure to undertake their monitoring and evaluation roles. Membership and terms of reference of these committees is determined annually. The committees at Mitton Manor include the Business & Finance Committee and the Education Committee, with sub-committees formed as necessary.
