Welcome to our Governors’ section.
Governors of Oaklands make decisions about how the school is run. Governors’ meetings are held twice per term and all parents are welcome to attend to listen to the proceedings (except where matters of confidentiality are discussed). Once approved and signed by the Chair of Governors all minutes of governors meetings are available in the school office for anyone to read.
Governors are appointed to help decide what is taught; to contribute to the interviewing, selection and management of the staff; to consider policies including behaviour management and to ensure that the school budget is spent appropriately. Governors also have certain legal duties, powers and responsibilities. All decisions of the Governing body are made through committee and not by individual Governors.
The Governing Body consists of parents, LA nominees, the Head Teacher, staff and other members of the community. All Governors have voting rights, but not necessarily at all meetings. Governors usually serve for a period of four years. Elected governor vacancies are always well advertised.
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor. We have also provided a Register of Governor Interests.
