Governors

The Governing Body
In common with most non academy status schools, Cadmore End School is managed by a Governing Body.
A governing body is responsible for the school's strategic planning. The role of the governing body is 'to conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement'. The governing body consists of representatives of the school's parents, staff, LEA, Diocese and other interested community members.

The Governors are responsible for setting the key strategic objectives of a school and as a Voluntary Aided school, Cadmore End School governors are the legal employer of all the school staff. They are neither professionals nor experts in education. They are meant to be a body of local people who represent the public interest in the school’s affairs. They have an essential role in ensuring a direct line of accountability between schools, the church and their local communities.

Members of the Governing Body act and are responsible jointly. Governors are not able to take decisions or exercise powers of governance individually, except for the Chair who has the power to act under delegated authority on behalf of the Governing Body.

Governors are drawn, in roughly equal shares, from four broad groups of stakeholders in education – parents, school staff, local authority and local community. Some are elected, some appointed by official bodies, some chosen by the governing bodies themselves and some are ex officio. All except the latter group have volunteered for the job. All are unpaid.

Our Constitution states that our Governing Body will be made up as follows:
  • 2 parent governors (elected by and representing the views of the parents)
  • 7 Foundation governors (appointed by Oxford Diocese and Cadmore End Parochial Church Council) including the Vicar of the parish
  • 2 staff governors of whom one is the Headteacher (1 elected by the staff)
  • 1 appointed by the local education authority (Buckinghamshire Council)
 
 
If you are interested in becoming a governor at our school please contact the school office or the governors at the e-mail address below.
