Governors

Welcome to the Strawberry Line Federation -  School Governing Body.

 

Governors are a voluntary body of people who guide and support the strategic direction of the school.  They are members of the school team and their contribution to running of the school is highly valued.


There are two primary schools in our federation:

  • Sandford Primary School (a Community School)
  • Winscombe Primary School (a Community School).

 

The Instrument of Government states that the governing body shall consist of a total of 12 governors:

  • 2 Parent Governors
  • 1 Headteacher
  • 1 Staff Governor
  • 1 Local Authority Governor
  • 7 Co-opted Governors.

 

The Governance Board has the following core strategic functions:

  • Establishing the strategic direction by:
    • Setting and ensuring clarity of vision, values and objectives for the schools
    • Agreeing the school improvement strategy with priorities and targets
    • Meeting statutory duties.
  • Ensuring accountability by:
    • Appointing the executive headteacher
    • Monitoring the educational performance of the schools and progress towards agreed target
    • Performance managing the executive headteacher
    • Engaging with stakeholders
    • Contributing to school self-evaluation.
  • Overseeing financial performance:
    • Setting the budget
    • Monitoring spending against the budget
    • Ensuring money is well spent and value for money is obtained
    • Ensuring risks to the organisation are managed.
