Governors are responsible for the strategic management and direction of the school. The Governors are not involved in the day to day management of the school, as that is the responsibility of the Headteacher.
The Governors meet as a full Governing Board at least once a term. The majority of Governor work is done by working committees.
Here at Highfield we have the following working committees:
1. Resources Committee
This committee meets termly and deals with all personnel matters relating to the school including formulating and agreeing HR policies. It also deals with all the finance relating to the school including formulation and managing and monitoring the school budget. It is chaired by William Greenwood.
2. Standards and Curriculum Committee
This committee monitors the school curriculum including analysing the pupil attainment in the school. It is chaired by Anna Hunter.
This committee is responsible for the appraisal of the Headteacher, chaired by William Greenwood.
This committee meets annually to agree salary progression for teachers and the headteacher and ensure that the pay policy is implemented, chaired by Anna Hunter.
