The governing body of Homewood College meets in full at least 6 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 Homewood Governing Body Code of Conduct 2018
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.
Homewood College has connections with The Connected Hub and Brighton and Hove Pupil Referral Unit. From April 2018 they are all 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 is therefore changing in autumn 2018 from having two committees to carry out some of its work, to three.
- Curriculum, Teaching and Learning
- Safeguarding Attendance Behaviour and Wellbeing
