Swing Gate Infant School and Nursery Governors
The Governing Body is a group of people drawn from parents, staff and members of the local community. Our role is to monitor, sustain and improve the overall performance of the school. Selection of staff, monitoring of the curriculum, review of school policies and maintaining the school premises are all functions of the Governing Body. Together with the Headteacher we have responsibility for the strategic direction of the school.
The Governing Body meets on a monthly basis to discuss strategic and operational matters concerning the school. In addition to the Governing Body we have a separate Pay Committee, made up of members of the Governing Body, who focus on both the teachers and the Headteachers performance and their pay and reward. In addition, the committee will also review the financial controls within the school
