Who We Are What We Do
Governors: What We Do
The Governing Body is a group of people who work together to support the headteacher in developing the school. North Leigh has Foundation, Parent and Community Governors and can also co-opt Governors if seeking a particular skill. Governors are involved in areas such as setting the budget, recruiting staff, ensuring maintenance of the buildings and grounds, and assisting the headteacher in monitoring the quality of educational provision offered to the children. The strategic direction of the school is shaped by the Governors.

Governors are specifically trained in data assessment, schools finance, safeguarding, Prevent training, performance management, safer recruitment and admissions management. All Governors also receive induction training.

The Full Governing Body meets at least four times a year and there are regular sub-committee meetings. Every governor serves on one of the two main sub-committees: School Improvement and Finance & Resources. Other committees (e.g. Pay & Performance, Admissions) are held when needed.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, ODST initiated temporary changes to local governance arrangements. Local Governing Bodies of ODST schools reduced down to small meetings, known as Emergency Advisory Committee meetings (EAC) which included ODST representation. Meetings took place via video conferencing to enable statutory governance functions to continue.
