The governing body of Hardenhuish School is made up of a combination of parents, past parents and community members.
While the headteacher is responsible for the day to day running of the school it is the governing body which is responsible to government for the strategic direction and oversight of the school.
This is set out by the government as:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
- Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
In addition, the board has a role to play in ensuring the school is compliant with educational and other legislation, such as safeguarding, equality and health and safety.
If you would like to know more about the work of the governing body, please follow the link below to the Scheme of Delegation.
Parents are welcome to stand for election when vacancies arise. Anyone over 18 and not on the staff of the school can also join as a Community Governor.
A skills audit is conducted each year to identify knowledge gaps on the board and we are always keen to hear from people with specific skills they can bring to the board such as legal, HR, finance, or accounting.
If you would like to know more about becoming a governor or would like to contact any of the governors, then please contact the clerk to the board at email@example.com.
