Welcome to the Governor’s Pages.
Sharmans Cross is fortunate to have a team of committed governors that work with the headteacher on the strategic development of the school. The Governing Body is a group of individuals who are elected, nominated or co-opted from key stakeholder groups; parents, staff, the Local Authority, and the local community. The responsibilities of the Governing Body and its various committees are outlined below on this page.
Our Chair of Governors is Mr P. Heywood
If you are interested in becoming a governor, please contact the headteacher or look out for vacancies displayed in the newsletter. Click on the star-links at the bottom of this page to find out more about our Governing Body and its work.
The Full Governing Body (FGB) usually meets twice each school term, and there are also three smaller Committees which have specific responsibilities, and report back to the FGB. These Committees normally meet at least once per term and have clear Terms of Reference.
The Governing Body as a whole has three core functions. Setting the vision for the school, holding the headteacher to account for the school’s educational performance, and ensuring the school's money is well spent.
