What do we do?
The Belton - Wroot Federation governing body is responsible, together with the head teacher, for the overall running of both school's. Governors work together as a team to help the school's grow, providing stimulating, secure and happy learning environments for all our pupils and staff.
We currently have 18 governors, made up of elected parents, elected teachers, and representatives of the church community and North Lincolnshire local education authority governors.
The governing body meets at least once a term and deals with a wide range of issues concerning the Federation. As governors our main responsibilities are to:
- oversee the schools' budgets. This is allocated each year by the local authority; The governing body, in consultation with the head teacher, decides how that money is spent;
- decide on staffing levels and oversees staff appointments;
- monitor the school development plan. This is a short, medium and long-term plan for the school covering the curriculum and its development, financial management and premises;
- maintain links with the local authority from which the school receives support and advice on financial, personnel, premises and curriculum matters;
If you have any questions about the work of the governing body, then please contact one of the governors, (see the 'who are we' section). You are also welcome to see non-confidential minutes of our governing body meetings, please just ask the school administrator.
If you are interested in becoming a governor, please contact Mrs Groves, the head teacher or Mrs Sarah Winkley, the chair of the Governing Body via the School Office.
You can either be elected as a parent governor (details of the next elections are available from Mrs Groves) appointed by the local education authority (this is done by the political parties represented on the Council), or be co-opted by the other governors.
