Governors

In brief, the Governing body have a general responsibility for the management of the school.  They support the Executive Headteacher, by acting as a “critical friend”.

The Calcot Schools Governing Body

You can contact the Clerk to the Governors via aelliott@c-jun.w-berks.sch.uk

The Executive Headteacher is responsible for the day-to-day running and management of the school, whilst the Governing Body are responsible for:

  • • Providing a strategic view to assist in the improvement of the school and to raise standards by working in association with the Headteacher and the teaching team – with support, advice and information drawn from the knowledge & experience of the serving governing members

  • • Providing both a support & challenge role – by monitoring the school’s effectiveness and continuing to challenge where required and pressing for ongoing improvements in our performance and standards

  • • Providing accountability – to the parents and the wider community.

  • Monitoring budgets and making sure that we are compliant in key areas such as Child Protection and Health and Safety.

  • Reviewing and updating the many statutory and non-statutory policies which underpin every aspect of school life.

All Governors provide their time on a voluntary basis, and in addition to serving on the Full Governing Body, serve on various other sub-committees which meet regularly to cover:

  • Curriculum: monitoring the curriculum and school’s performance against key criteria

  • Finance, Health, Safety and Sites: approving & monitoring the school’s budget and Health & Safety

  • Personnel: monitoring the schools staff and management including recruitment, performance and pay

  • We always welcome any feedback – positive or otherwise – and are delighted to hear from any parent at any time.

  • Young Carer's Awareness Day 2019

    On the 31st January is Young Carer's Awareness Day.  Current figures are that 1 in 5 secondary children have a caring role.  The figures are 1 in 10 for children under the age of 10.

    A young carer is someone under 18 who helps look after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled or misuses drugs or alcohol. They will do many tasks like:

    Practical tasks, such as cooking, housework or shopping.

    Physical care, such as helping someone out of bed.

    Emotional support, such as talking to someone who is distressed.

    Personal care, such as helping someone dress.

    Managing the family budget and collecting prescriptions.

    Helping to give medicine.

    Helping someone communicate.

    Looking after brothers and sisters.

     If you would like more information as to how to help a young carer. Please click on the link below.
