Governors of the Federation of Mill Hill and Woodcroft Schools
Welcome to this section of the website. A smaller more focussed Governing Body, based on skills, started on 10 July 2014. There are now 10 willing volunteers* who give time, energy and expertise to ensure that the Federation provides the very best learning opportunities and environment for all the pupils. The Governors' task is to ensure the Federation of the two schools continues to improve so that the highest possible standards are achieved all the time. Governors are part of the leadership teams and focus on ensuring that there is a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction, hold the leaders to account for pupils' achievements and overseeing the finances of the Federation to make sure that money is well spent.
The Leaders and staff are responsible for the day to day running of the school and they work hard to implement the Federations' Strategic Plans. It is the responsibility of the Governors to challenge and support the school in its ways of providing the best all round education for all the children.
The Governors meet twice a term for Full Governing Body meetings and once a term each for a Resources Committee meeting and a Standards, Curriculum and Inclusion Committee meeting at 4pm. Meetings last no longer than 2 hours.
The new rules of Governance now states that we can ask for volunteers to help us with skills needed to complete our important role. There is now not a requirement for election or for a commitment to fulfil a full term of governance. If you feel you could provide any of the following skills or wish to contact the Chair of Governors, please feel free to do so by contacting the school office.
