The governing body of Homewood College meets in full at least 4 times a year. Governors are not involved in the day to day running of the school, which is managed by the School Leadership Team. Governors agree to abide by the Code of Conduct 2019 Homewood College Governing Body
The work of the Governing Body has three main strands:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
- Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
More information about the role of governors is available in the governance handbook 2019. Homewood College has connections with The Connected Hub and Brighton and Hove Pupil Referral Unit and together they form The Central Hub. From April 2018 they have all been led by an Executive Headteacher. The governing body at Homewood College liaises with members of these units’ management committee to develop the benefits of joint working. The structure of the governing body changed in autumn 2018 from having two committees to carry out some of its work, to two working groups made up of governors and members of the Management Committee and a Resources Committee made up solely of governors. The working groups have advisory powers only. There is also a pay committee drawn from the governing body that sits to fulfill its functions under the pay policy.
