The Governing Body

 

School Governors are members of a school's Governing Body; they have responsibility for raising school standards through their three key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and acting as a critical friend. They are the largest volunteer force in the country.

 

 Here at Silver Springs, the Governing Body consists of governors from differing areas, 

  • Parents - elected by other parents.
  • Staff - elected by other members of staff.
  • Co-Opted - appointed by the Trust.

 

Whether appointed or elected, each governor has a term of office, which is a maximum of four years before they have to seek re-election/re-appointment.

 

Our Governing Board meet every half term.

 

Being a Governor is voluntary and as such, Governors do not receive any payment for their work. Training is given for every aspect of the role and is delivered locally.
