The Governing Body of HGFS

School governing bodies fulfil three core strategic functions:
1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
2. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of the staff
3. Overseeing the financial management of the school, ensuring it is money well spent.
The Governing Body of Holmer Green First School has 13 members. We have 2 staff Governors (including the headteacher), 3 Parent Governors, 1 Local Authority Governor and 7 Co-opted (community) Governors. The Chair of Governors is Mr Simon Heath, the Vice Chairs are Mr David Eteen and Mrs Stephanie Young.
As well as holding full governing body meetings, the governing body is structured through committees to address specific areas of focus: Curriculum Challenge, Premises, Health & Safety; Extended Services (Pre-school and Cherry Tree Clubs)  and Finance & Personnel, Performance Management and Pay Review. Governors may also be required to sit on grievance, complaints or disciplinary panels.
Governors can be contcted via the school office -
