Governance Arrangements

The Governing Body of Bromley Hills primary school was re-constituted in 2015. It is made up of the headteacher, 1 staff governor, 2 Parent Governors and 5 Co-opted governors. Co-opted governors are people, in the opinion of the governing body, who have the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.

Our governors play an important role in our school. They are involved in a regular and rigorous programme of evaluation and monitoring to ensure that they have a thorough understanding of our school’s work.

All governors serve a 4-year term of office with the exception of the HT who remains on the GB as long as he/she is in post.

Governors serve the school on a voluntary basis with the exception of the clerk.

  • Parent governors are elected by school parents following a nomination process
  • Staff governors are elected by staff members following a nomination process
  • Co-opted governors are appointed from the local community by the GB in relation to their skills and expertise
  • Local Authority governors are recommended to the school by the LA following a central appointment process

When and How our Governing Body Meet

The Full Governing Body meets 4 times each term. Twice at agenda meetings held at 6pm and twice a term for half or full days in school to meet with pupils and staff. We have 2 committees that look after Staff Pay/Appeals and others can be set up if required for a specific reason such as pupil discipline. When we meet we discuss a range of topics and issues that affect Bromley Hills Primary school. Each governor has a different role and responsibility within their remit such as data, SEND or Foundation Stage.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our governors have had to adapt to new ways of working. We are currently meeting on Teams and all non-essential visits to school have been put on hold.

Lead Roles of Governors

The Governors take a lead role on all areas, particularly Safeguarding, Data, Performance, Attainment, Pupil and PE/Sports Premium and Finance. We come into school to meet with the staff and pupils to ensure the effectiveness of the termly Raising Attainment Plan (RAP). Governors then write a report which is uploaded to our Governor Cloud which can be accessed by all governors.

How to Contact the Governors

Our Chair of Governors can be contacted via the school office.
