Yorkley School Governors
Welcome To Yorkley School
As Governors we have a responsibility to ensure that our school provides the best possible education for all children and that everyone is safe and supported.
We work closely with the Head Teacher to create a vision and ethos for the school developing plans, policies and procedures to enable us to influence the strategic direction of the school.
Governors set the school budget and are responsible for ensuring that the best value is achieved with the school resources.
We ensure that the school meets all statutory requirements and duties including Safeguarding and Equalities and the delivery of the National Curriculum.
As Governors we are responsible for the performance management of the Head Teacher and to ensure all staff undergo performance management and receive any appropriate training and development opportunities they require. We ask questions and receive written information that allows us to support and challenge the Head Teacher as part of our monitoring role within the school.
We are accountable to parents and the wider community for the performance of the school and we visit the school regularly to meet pupils, staff and parents.
Our Governors are from a range of different backgrounds including parents, staff, the local authority and the wider community in Yorkley.
As a Governing Body we meet at least three times a year and we delegate some functions to the five committees listed below:
- Buildings and Premises
- Curriculum and Standards

The Department for Education required that the Governing Bodies of all schools reconstitute by the 1st September 2015. The Yorkley Governing Body reconstitution took place on Tuesday 17th March 2015. Governors had to complete a skills audit to ensure that the Governing Body as a whole has the required expertise to govern the school. Following the skills audit, the membership of the Governing Body remains unchanged but the types of Governor have undergone changes.
