Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.
As required by law, we reconstituted our Governing Body in March 2015. We thought long and hard about how many Governors we required and what skills were needed to deliver our core roles of:
We decided that we could become more effective if we reduced our Governing Body in size from 18 to 13 Governors.
There are now 2 categories of Governor; a core of 5 Governors elected by the previous Governing Body and 8 co-opted Governors, identified as bringing the appropriate skillls.

The work of the Governing body is wide-ranging and there are, therefore, committees which have specific areas of work delegated to them. These committees meet termly and, where appropriate, report back to the full Governing body meeting for ratification of their decisions. Clockhouse has four committees; these are Full Governors, Finance & Resources, Standards & Achievement, and Human Resources. A brief description of the remit of the committees are as follows:
Full Governors – all governors are members. Meetings are termly. This looks at the 'big picture' for the school, agrees the overall long term vision and the shorter term priorities for how we want Clockhouse to develop.
Finance & Resources - sets the budget and then monitors expenditure, Staffing Matters and recruitment, and Health and Safety.
Achievement and Standards - looks at progress data of children and groups to ensure that every child is achieving their full potential and the quality of teaching and learning is improving. Monitors the curriculum and appropriate policies. We have recently boosted this committee to meet half termly to extend a particularly keen eye on children's progress.
Human Resources - looks at all staffing matters from recruitment to performance management and staff development. Sets the Pay Policy,
Additionally individual Governors also take responsibility for monitoring different themes or subjects and report back to the Full Governing Body.
