Welcome to our Governor Section.

If you are a school governor you can access the password-protected ‘Governors’ Zone’ to find the latest meeting papers and useful links.

The Role of the Governing Body:

Governors help direct the school’s future by feeding into the school’s development plan and looking forward strategically to how the school should be improving. They act as a ‘critical friend’, challenging and supporting the management team. They are also accountable for monitoring the school’s progress against development aims, ensuring strong financial control against the budget and ensuring statutory requirements are met. Governors are not involved with the day-to-day running of the school, which is the responsibility of the Head and the School Leadership Team.

Ashley Junior School is a Foundation School, so this gives the Governing Body some extra powers. As a Foundation School Governing Body the governors set the school’s admission policy and are involved in the appointment of staff.
