The Governing Body at Holme Valley has a strategic and supportive role, working in close partnership with the Headteacher to promote continuous improvement. Our aim is to provide a long-term direction, ensure accountability and be a critical friend to the school.
The Governing Body meets officially 6 times a year but Governors are also actively involved in many aspects of school life.
Our Governors are linked to key areas of the school curriculum and meet their subject managers to gain a comprehensive overview throughout the school year.
The Governing Body and individual Governors are expected to conduct our business in a professional manner, with the focus on the best outcomes for children at the heart of all that we do and to maintain and respect confidentiality at all times. We have adopted a Code of Conduct and operate within agreed Standing Orders for the Governing Body. Some of our work is conducted through our committees which have specific terms of reference and delegated authority on behalf of the Governing Body.
