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.
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.
Some of its work is delegated to committees of which there are currently two.
- Curriculum, Teaching and Learning (Committee established 11.3.15)
- Safeguarding Attendance Behaviour and Wellbeing (Committee established 11.3.15)
Non Confidential Minutes for the Full Governing Body and Committee meetings will be posted on this page once they have been approved at the following meeting.
