The governance arrangements of Wheldon Infant School and Nursery are provided below.
As Governors, we are responsible for a number of areas including attainment, finance, policies and procedures. Our role involves working closely with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to ensure children get the best possible education to enable them to reach their full potential, in an environment where they feel safe, valued and learning is fun.
Governors have a very significant role to play in ensuring that, along with the Head teacher and colleagues, they move the school forward in a coherent, cohesive way.
Our main functions are to:
- Help set the aims and objectives for the school
- Help to ensure our policies and procedures are relevant and achieve their objectives
- Set targets to monitor the progress of the school to ensure it is meeting its aims and objectives
- Be a critical friend to the school and provide a source of challenge and support.
The Governing Body structure comprises of:
- 1 LA Governor
- 1 Staff Governor
- The Headteacher
- 3 Parent Governors
- 4 Co-opted Governors
