Governor Monitoring

Governors carry out a range of activities to enable them to have a good understanding of how the school is progressing and to ensure that the school meets it’s statutory obligations.

All governors are encouraged to attend the annual ‘Monitoring Morning or Afternoon’. During this visit, governors have the opportunity to spend time in lessons and talk to pupils about different aspects of school for example behaviour and learning.

Governors have specific ‘link roles’ linked to subjects (e.g. Maths, English) or area (e.g. Safeguarding, SEN) . These governors meet with the relevant member of staff leading this area several times each year. They discuss plans and developments in these specific areas. Governors may also inspect documents such as health and safety checks and reports.

In addition, each year group  has a link governor. This governor visits the class and discusses progress and specific strategies that are in place to support learning with the class teacher and teaching assistant.
