At Welbourn Church of England Primary School we have dedicated team of supportive governors who have a broad range of skills. The headteacher of the school is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school. The role of the Governing Body is to provide strategic management and to support and challenge the work of the headteacher and other staff.

The Governing Body play an important role in monitoring and evaluating school performance and ensuring rapid progress is being made towards our improvement priorities. 

Our Governors play an active role in monitoring and evaluating in school, and this year they have been involved in learning walks, lesson observation alongside the headteacher, pupil interviews and attended school visits. Many governors also attend Parents Consultations, School Productions, as well as supporting other functions within school. All of these activities enable them to gain a real perspective of our school and allows challenge to take place. 

Annual targets are set for the school's performance and for the headteacher, as well as ensuring teaching staff have performance related targets. 

As a Maintained school. the Governing Body is responsible for managing the budget effectively and ensuring best value. They can decide how many and what types of staff to employ, which equipment to upgrade or replace and what the priorities are for implementing new strategies and initiatives. Every decision made is to ultimately improve the outcomes for our children, and ensure our school is driving towards rapid improvement. 

Our Governing Body is currently split into two committees:

A full governing body, including curriculum and standards. 

Health, Safety and Finance committee.
