Our Governors

What do Governors do? 

The role of School Governors is to: 

  • Set strategic direction
  • To hold school leaders to account for improving performance
  • To make sure money is well spent and resources meet the needs of the school

To do this we provide challenge and support to the Head Teacher, drawing on our own knowledge and experience.

The Full Governing Body at Boughton Monchelsea meets once a term and oversees the strategic development of the school alongside the Head Teacher and Senior Leadership Team.

The Boughton Monchelsea governing body uses the circle model for its monitoring. The governors are split into monitoring pairs. The pairs then visit the school, to focus on their SIP (School Improvement Plan) area and look at progress against targets and challenge on behalf of the FGB and report back their findings.

The School Improvement Plan Areas are: 

  • Leadership and Management
  • Quality of Education
  • Personal Development, Behaviour and Safety
  • Finance 

We also have governors who cover specific monitoring roles: 

  • Early Years
  • Pupil Premium
  • Health and Safety
  • Safeguarding
  • SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development)
  • SEN (Special Education Needs)
  • Training 

We make decisions together on matters such as performance, targets, school policies and school improvement plan. 

The Full Governors’ meetings are closed, but anyone can apply to the Chair of Governors to attend as an observer.
