As a Church of England Voluntary Aided school the governors alongside the head teacher and senior leadership team set the vision and the strategic direction of the school. The governing body is responsible for monitoring the school on its educational performance and ensuring that financial resources are well spent. The governing body is a critical friend of the school offering support and challenging the leadership to ensure the school and children make expected progress within the ethos of the school.
As a voluntary aided school we are responsible for raising 10% towards any capital spending on our school. Our most recent project was to replace a demountable classroom (hut) with two new classrooms.
At Bisley the governors meet termly to scrutinise data and check progress of the children, monitor policies and keep up to date with government and Diocesan legislation. They meet with all staff in the summer term to set priorities for the forthcoming academic year as set out in the school development plan.
The governing body consists of:
- foundation governors, appointed from recommendations by the Rector and Parochial Church Council;
- parent governors, voted for by parents of children at the school for a term of four years;
- staff governors include the head teacher and representatives from both teaching and support staff.
The minutes of all meetings are available to view by appointment with the school office.
