Governing Body

What do Bramber Primary School Governors Do?
Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards. At Bramber Primary School, we are fortunate that we have an extremely dedicated and committed board of governors. The role of the governing board is absolutely key to the effectiveness of our school and they have an enormous impact acting as challenge and support to Bramber. Time and time again Ofsted (the national inspection body for schools) has noted that the most effective schools demonstrate effective leadership and management - including by the governing board. Other than the committee groups mentioned below, Bramber Primary School's governing body meet monthly (during term-time) and hold full governing body meetings.   
 
The role of our Governing Body:-
Each individual governor at Bramber is a member of our governing board, which is established in law as a corporate body. Individual governors may not act independently of the rest of the governing board; decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing board.  

The role of the governing board is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • set the aims and objectives for our school
  • set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • monitor and evaluate the progress Bramber Primary School is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • be a source of challenge and support to. Mrs Tracy Taylor, the headteacher ( to be a critical friend)
