The Role of the Governing Body:
Governors help direct the school's future by helping to formulate the school's Development Plan, looking forward strategically to how the school should be improving and developing over the next several years and into the future. They act as a "critical friend", challenging and supporting the management team. They are also accountable for monitoring the school's progress towards those development aims, ensuring strong financial control against the budget and that statutory requirements are met. They are not involved with the day-to-day running of the school, which is the responsibility of the Head and the school leadership team.
Little Ealing Governors
The Full Governing Body of 17 people meets at least once termly and delegates some responsibilities to committees and working groups. Currently at Little Ealing there are 3 committees - Teaching and Learning, Resources (which includes premises, personnel and finance) and The Strategic Review Group.
There are four categories of Governor:
All governors are unpaid volunteers, who give their time and enthusiasm freely, and at Little Ealing many of them have children at the school.
