Local Advisory Board

Governance at Knowle- Local Advisory Board

 

Welcome to the Local Governors’ page for Knowle Primary School. We would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about ourselves, our roles and our aims.

 

Our Local Governing Body, now known as a Local Advisory Board, comprises of eleven governors, all of whom bring different skills to governance. 

 

Local governors are volunteers who give their time and commitment to meet to discuss standards and support and challenge the school leadership. The  Local Advisory Board also contibutes to OFSTED inspections.  

 

Our aim:

To be an effective board in challenging and supporting the school so that weaknesses are tackled decisively and our statutory responsibilities are met.

We will endeavour to do this by:

  • Holding six meetings per year. 
  • Appointing a clerk to record our work.
  • Electing a Chair and Vice Chair.
  • Advising all parents of any parent vacancies, all staff of staff vacancies and looking to appoint members of the community as co-opted governors.  
  • Annually adopt the SEF.
  • Noting term dates for the academic year and agree the occasional non pupil days.
  • Receiving Head Teacher reports three times per year.
  • Reviewing and monitoring examination/national test results.
  • Reviewing the level of exclusions.
  • Monitoring attendance of pupils and staff.
  • Agreeing Curriculum Plans.
  • Setting pupil performance targets.
  • Inducting new governors to the local advisory board.
  • Visiting school to see how strategies are being delivered in school. 
  • Reviewing, adopting and monitoring the procedures for dealing with complaints from parents/carers.
  • Reviewing, approving and monitoring the School Improvement Plan.
  • Annually elect local governors for the following responsibilities:-

        English, Mathematics, SEN (Special Educational Needs), Looked After

        Children, Child Protection, Healthy & Safety and Early Years.  

  • Maintaining and updating annually a file of pecuniary interest declarations.
  • Organising support and training for governors.  

 

As you can see there is a great deal expected of all local advisory boards, which is why it is important that responsibilities are shared.
