Our Governing Body

The role of governors is to ensure that the school is doing the best job possible for the community. School governors play a central role in deciding how the school is run, they set the ethos for the school and hold the senior leaders in the school to account.
The role of governors is to ensure that the school is doing the best job possible for the community. School governors play a central role in deciding how the school is run, they set the ethos for the school and hold the senior leaders in the school to account.

Governors set targets for what we expect pupils to achieve in their time at Welbourne and they then work with teachers to decide how best to achieve those targets. Governors are responsible for deciding how the school spends its money; for example spending on refurbishing buildings or buying in the services of family support workers. They also appoint senior staff and monitor performance.

Governing Body Register of Interests for School Governors

The governing body and school staff have a responsibility to avoid any conflict between business and personal interests and the interests of the school. To help put this duty into practice and to meet legal requirements, all maintained schools maintain a register of interests. The register will ensure that governors’ and Associate Members personal interests do not unfairly prejudice, influence or conflict with school’s decision making processes.
