GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE

The governance structure for The Green School for Boys consists of two tiers: the Board of Directors of The Green School Trust and the Local Governing Body for The Green School for Boys. The Board of Directors delegate responsibilities to the Local Governing Body through a Scheme of Delegation.

The Local Governing Body’s responsibilities include:

  • Monitoring pupils’ academic achievement
  • Ensuring that all pupils receive support according to their individual needs
  • Monitoring the quality of teaching
  • Reviewing the staff structure
  • Scrutinising the school’s finances regularly and in detail
  • Overseeing spiritual, moral, social and cultural education
  • Reviewing specific curriculum issues and extra-curricular activities
  • Establishing and maintaining links with parents
  • Setting up panels as required for admissions, staff grievances and disciplinary issues and student exclusions

Governors bring relevant skills and experience to their task and undertake appropriate training. Governors are linked with an area of activity within the school to enable them to get to know the school through informal visits and contribute to a specific area of school life.

Governors do not get involved in the day-to-day management or operation of the school nor in issues relating to individual pupils (other than in the case of an exclusion panel).  They cannot make decisions as individuals unless they have specific authority from the full Local Governing Body to do so.

The Directors, the Governors, the Executive Headteacher and the Head of School work in close partnership for the good of the school, respecting each other’s roles and responsibilities.  Governors act as “critical friends”, by supporting the Executive Headteacher and Head of School in the performance of their responsibilities by providing advice, feedback and constructive challenge.

The constitution of the Local Governing Body for The Green School for Boys is as follows:

  • Six Foundation Governors, appointed by the Board of Directors
  • Two Parent Governors, elected by parents
  • One Staff Governor, elected by staff
  • The Head of School, ex officio

Except for the Head of School, who is ex officio, members of the Local Governing Body are appointed or elected for a three year term, although they can be reappointed or re-elected at the end of their term of office. The Executive Headteacher and all Directors may attend Local Governing Body meetings.
