The aim of a Governing Body is to maintain and improve the standards of education for the children at the school.
The Governing Body is somewhat similar to a Board of Directors; it works with the Head Teacher, to manage the business of the school. The Head is responsible for the school management on a daily basis. Strategic long term targets and policies are planned and agreed at Governor's meetings.
Linden School Governors bring a wide span of skills and experience together for the benefit of the school. They are elected or nominated by various stakeholder groups to maintain this breadth of expertise. These individual Governors do not directly represent their stakeholder groups; they are all of equal status and work together under the corporate authority of the full governing body.
Full Governing Body meetings are held at least once a term. The approved minutes are held in the school office and available for anyone who wishes to read them. We also have a Finance & General Purposes Committee and Pay & Performance Management Committee who report to the Governing Body.
