Aragon Governing Body

The Local Governing Body of Aragon Primary School consists of eleven elected Governors and three Associate Governors and includes members of staff, parents and co-opted members from the local community.  The Governing Body ensures a transparent recruitment process and governors are appointed following nomination and election according to statutory guidance. All governors volunteer their services and time and have been elected because of their specific knowledge and skills essential for the effective governance of the school.  Terms of office are for 4 years with the Chair and Vice Chair requiring annual election. Associate members of Aragon Local Governing Body have no voting rights but bring their specific expertise to the Governing Body and can Chair Committees/ Focus Groups and may report to the Full Governing Body.

 

Full Governing Body Meetings are held termly and along with Ms Davey, Headteacher, who is responsible for the day to day management and control of the school, we provide the school's strategic focus and direction.  As a Governing Body we are also entrusted with the ethos, clarity and vision of the school as well as being accountable for ensuring financial probity. 

The Local Governing Body’s Code of Conduct is strictly adhered to and signed annually and it is our duty to publish a Register of Interests for each current governor and those which have served at any point over the past 12 months.  This includes any relevant business/pecuniary interests of governors, details of any other educational establishments they govern and any material interests arising from relationships between governors; or, relationships between governors and members of school staff (including spouses, partners and relatives).  Such declarations will be recorded in the Register of Business Interests, a copy of which is available at the school and will also be published on the website.

 

The role of governor can be a challenging one and it is rewarding to be a representative of an organisation that has such a positive impact on the children that attend the school and the community it serves.  All decision we make are always in the best interest of the school, the pupils, the staff and the parents/ carers.
