The Fenland Federation Governing Body
The Governing Body is made up of willing and skilled volunteers who freely give their time and expertise to support the schools and assist in its leadership and management. Our focus is on setting and monitoring the strategic direction for the school and ensuring we have the resources to deliver an outstanding education for every pupil. The Executive Headteacher’s run the school day to day, and the Governing Body appoints the Executive Headteachers and supports their work.
we currently have 14 Governors who meet regularly throughout the year all together as a Full Governing Body and each Governor has a responsibility for a specific area within school.
Parent Governors are elected by parents and carers of children in the school, Co-opted Governors are elected by the Governing Body and the Local Authority Governor is appointed by the LA. In addition the Headteacher is also a member, as is one member of current staff, elected by their colleagues. All governors with the exception of ex-officio governors are appointed for a term of office of 4 years.
The Clerk to Governors is Georgia Brown who can be contacted through the school.
We currently have vacancies for Co-Opted Governors and a Foundation Governor. If you would like to know more, please contact the Chair of Governors or the Headteacher for an informal, no obligations chat.
If you would like to find out more generally about the work of Governors in schools you may find these websites useful.
At The Fenland Federation, Governors are part of the everyday fabric of the school with many volunteering to listen to pupils reading or getting actively involved in the PFA and general school life.
