The Governing Body

Welcome to the Governor section of the OLQOH website.


Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

 

Our Governing Body


Our Governing Body provide support to the school leadership team of the school. 

They meet on at least 16 occasions during the year with at least one meeting each term for the whole Governing Body and half termly meetings for the various committees (Teaching, Learning & Curriculum; Assessment & Progress; Resources; RE).

The Resources Committee (HR, Finance and Premises) plans the schools expenditure against the budget allocated via the Local Authority.  This Committee is responsible for staff recruitment, employment and HR management.  They provide statutory oversight of Health and Safety and develop a buildings plan to ensure that our children have a modern, pleasant and effective environment in which to learn.

The Teaching and Learning Committee support the SLT by ensuring that pupils OLQOH have access to outstanding teaching of a curriculum that is broad, balanced and based on the Gospel values of the school.

There are different categories of Governor:

 

  • Foundation - appointed by the Bishop
  • Parent - elected by Parents & Carers
  • Staff - elected by Staff
  • Local Authority - a representative from the local area (often a political appointee)
  • Head Teacher - the Head Teacher is a member of the Governing Body

 

Since September 2015, the Governors have also had the power to co-opt additional members to join the FGB.  For example, the school's Learning Mentor, Linda Kelly, attends all FGBs, providing advice and guidance to Governors.  The Governors are supported by their clerk, Mrs Mary Lamplough.
