The Governing Body is the “accountable body” of the school- accountable to parents, pupils, the local authority and to Government through Ofsted. The Governing Body works with the Headteacher to ensure that every pupil has the best opportunity to fulfil their potential and make good progress through access to a vibrant curriculum, excellent teaching and a safe learning environment. We work with the Senior Leadership team and teachers to develop appropriate policies which will support effective teaching and learning and we have responsibility for ensuring the financial management of the school is sound.
Our Governing Body has reconstituted in March 2015 and is now made up of 3 Parent Governors, 2 Staff Governors, 1 LA Governor and 6 Co-opted Governors. Governors are usually appointed for a 4 year term of office although they can resign at any time.
In addition to the work done by the Full Governing Body, we have 3 main committees -Resources (Finance, Buildings & Health & Safety); School Improvement ; Pay & Personnel, these meet termly along with the full Governing Body meeting approximately 5 times/year.
The Governors are committed to ensuring that Wrotham Road School is continuously improving and fulfilling the school ethos of “opportunity, excellence and enjoyment for all”.
Parents are welcome to contact the Governors through the Chair of Governors (Lucy Hornby) via the School Office or please feel free to talk to any Governor.
