Governance at Moor Park Primary School

The Governing Board has three core functions, as set out in the Department for Education’s (DfE) Governance Handbook. 

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding Executive Leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent. 

 

Governance Arrangements

To undertake the core functions, we have established the following governance structure for Moor Park Primary School:

  • Two Parent Governors
  • One Local Authority Governor
  • One Staff Governor
  • One Headteacher
  • Seven Co-opted Governors

The total number of Governors on the Board is twelve.

 

We have regular meeting of the Full Governing Board and of two Committees.

Resources Committee

This Committee focuses on health and safety, staffing and budget matters.

Standards & Effectiveness Committee

This Committee focuses on data around results, curriculum, teaching and learning and the School Development Plan.
