Governors

Thank you for choosing to visit​ our website to find out about the work that Governors do in support of Olive Hill.

Our Governing Body members are drawn from a wide range of backgrounds.  We have Staff and Parent Governors who are directly linked to Olive Hill, Governors appointed by the Local Authority, and Governors who have been Co-opted to serve on the governing Body in view of the particular skills they offer.  The diversity of skills experience and expertise we possess as a whole enables us to support and challenge the leadership team at Olive Hill.  The Governing Body meet as often as required, meeting once each term as a minimum.

Committee Structure

Much of the work of the Governing Body is carried out at committee level.  We have two committees in place who work to specific terms of reference and a scheduled programme of meetings.  In addition, we also have statutory committees in place for the purposes of disciplinary and dismissal matters and pay review.  Governors are linked to a school improvement priority and visit the school on a regular basis, meeting staff and pupils.

Our committee structure is currently as follows:

School Improvement Committee

The purpose of the School Improvement Committee is to monitor teaching, learning and assessment, personal development behaviour and safety, the effectiveness of leadership and outcomes for pupils.  The committee meets termly as a minimum.

Finance, Personnel, Buildings, Health and Safety

This committee monitors the school's finance and personnel to ensure that money is spent in the best interests of pupils.  It also makes strategic decisions and the school building and grounds and monitors health and safety.

Please see below for the information which we are required to publish about individual Governors.  Contact with the chair/vice chair of Governors should be made via the school office.
