Grimes Dyke School
The Governing Body at Grimes Dyke is made up of 13 full governors and 3 associate governors. We have an excellent mix of Governors comprising of elected parents, local authority representatives, teachers, non teaching staff and co-opted members. The Governors bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to support the work of the Governing Body.
Governors meet as a whole Governing Body three to four times a year. Sub-Committees do the bulk of the work and feed back to the GB. There are four main sub-committees - Chairs, Resources, Pupil Support and Teaching and Learning, these committees meet at least once a term. In addition we have smaller committees which deal with Finance and Head Teacher Performance. Some Governors have specific responsibilities, such as, Inclusion / Safeguarding, Child Protection, Early Years and Health and Safety.
Strong governance is essential for good schools. Governing Bodies hold important strategic responsibilities for the development and improvement of the school. A key role of governing bodies is to support and challenge headteachers in order to ensure pupils receive the best possible education.
