Full Governing Body Meetings for 2019-20:

 

2nd October 2019, 26th February 2020, 10th June 2020, 7th October 2020

The governing body provides challenge and support for the work of the Headteacher and Staff. It's primary purpose is to ensure the highest quality of educational provision and to act as the accountable body for school. By performing effectively the governors provide continuous accountability in order to ensure the highest possible outcomes for every child in each cohort.

 

"Newtown governing body provides strong support for leaders and managers and challenges them to ensure that the school continues to improve and move forward. It makes certain that safeguarding procedures and practices are secure. It has overseen arrangements for the use of the pupil premium funding and checked they are working. Governors are aware of the arrangements for making sure teachers' pay is closely linked to their performance. The governing body plays a full part in the school's self-evaluation, monitoring and improvement planning. Governors ensure that they are well trained and understand what data show about the performance of the school compared to similar schools and schools nationally. The governing body knows what is happening in the school and is aware that overall provision is exceptional." Ofsted 2013
