The Governing Body’s main aim is to develop the strategic direction of the school in collaboration with the head teacher and to raise standards of achievement, making sure that the school provides a good quality education and complies with its statutory duties.
The day-to-day management of the school is the responsibility of the head teacher and staff. The Governors role is to help shape the school’s future direction and focus.
At Cuffley there are 10 Governors, whose skills and experience are matched to their roles on the Governing Body.
The Governors are required to declare any pecuniary interests at the start of each meeting. At present there are no recorded pecuniary interests. Whilst governors regularly attend training and annual governor conferences, networking with other local governors, none have a governance responsibility in another school.
The Governing Body work as a team and are an integral part of school. They are responsible for school performance. They support and challenge the Headteacher by gathering views, asking questions and reviewing the school improvement plan.
There are three sub committees of the Full Governing Body, who are responsible for:
Curriculum & Standards
Finance & Premises
There are other individual roles such as SEND and Health and Safety Governors. All governors regularly visit the school.
