Governor Monitoring Reports

The purpose of governance is to provide confident and strong strategic leadership which leads to robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance.


All governance boards, no matter what type of school or how many schools they govern, have three core functions


• 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; and

• Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

Governors at Church Lench CE First School are responsible for monitoring the school development plan and ensuring that the vision and expectations are effective. They are responsible for holding the school to account on progress, achievement and delivering a broad and balanced curriculum. Governors are given a timetable by the headteacher during the autumn term and arrange their visits with the subject leader and headteacher. They have a proforma to follow when undertaking learning visits and a report to issue to parents.
