The Governing Body at Cedars Primary School are delighted and proud of with the way in which the school is managing the delivery of education through a blended on-line and face to face provision during these difficult times. The care for the pupils and staff is evident in everything our dedicated staff team do.
Kate Warren Chair of Governors
The job of a Governing Body is to work with the Headteacher and senior leadership team to ensure pupils get the best education possible.
A Governing Body has the responsibility for ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; overseeing the financial performance of the school; and making sure its money is well spent.
At Cedars the Governing Body meets once a term in full but most of the work is carried out in two main committees, the Teaching and Learning Committee, and the Resources Committee. These groups meet at least once a term with additional meetings held as required.
Governors at Cedars also do much more than this, they can be regular visitors to school, help out in class and be present at school events. They also bring a wealth of life and relevant professional experience from their different personal and career backgrounds, often helping with specific projects and initiatives.
