Governors

The Governing Body

School Governors are members of a school's Governing Body; they have responsibility for raising school standards through their three key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and acting as a critical friend. They are the largest volunteer force in the country.

 Here at Ivy Bank the Governing Body consists of governors from differing areas, 

  • Parents - elected by other parents.
  • Staff - elected by other members of staff.
  • Co-Opted - appointed by the governing body.

Whether appointed or elected each governor has a term of office, which is a maximum of four years before they have to seek re-election/re-appointment.

Our Governing Board meet as a whole group at least 3 times per year; however the work they do is split into three committees. These are;

  • Standards and Curriculum Committee
  • Resource Committee
  • Audit Committee

Being a Governor is voluntary and as such, Governors do not receive any payment for their work. Training is offered for every aspect of the role and is delivered locally by the local authority.

Our Chair of Governors is Mrs Pat Broadley. She can be contacted via email on chair@ivybank.cheshire.sch.uk
