Governing Body

Welcome to the Severn Federation of Schools Governors' Section.

If there is anything you would like to discuss with your School Governors please contact us via the Clerk; clerk@lydney.gloucs.sch.uk, or via the school reception (01594  842426).

Governor Vacancies.

The Severn Federation Governing Body has a vacancy for a Parent Governor. You must be a parent of a current pupil of Aylburton school to be eligible for this position. If you have any queries about the role please contact the Clerk; clerk@lydney.gloucs.sch.uk, or speak to the School Office.

 

The Severn Federation Governing Body has a vacancy for a Co-opted Governor. You do not need to be affiliated with the school(s) in any way to be a co-opted governor. If you would like more information about being a governor please contact the Clerk; clerk@lydney.gloucs.sch.uk.

The School Governors.

 

The Governors are responsible for all matters concerning the School, including the curriculum, maintenance of the buildings and appointment of staff. The Governors meet at least once a term.

Agenda and Minutes are available in the School office upon request.

 

The governing body is designed to look after the overall running of the school.

They are responsible for:

  • Ensuring accountability.
  • Monitoring and evaluating the school’s progress.
  • Budgetary allocation and control.
  • Planning for the long term future of the school.
  • Setting the school’s aims and values.
  • Appointing senior members of staff including the Head Teacher.

Whilst the governors are always open to ideas and opinions they are not primarily responsible for:

  • Discussing the individual needs of pupils (please contact your childs teacher for this).
  • Complaints/concerns about staff (this should initially be addressed to the Head Teacher).
  • Fund raising and social events (this is run by the Friends).
