School Governors

Rosemellin School Governors

Our school is proud to be part of the Crofty Multi Academy Trust, the running of which is overseen by the board of trustees. The Board of Trustees is chaired by Mr Mike Hosking.

The Trust Board is made up of volunteers, mainly people who have been school governors in the past but also includes people with specific business or educational skills. They set the strategic direction for the Trust, hold the Trust to account for its outcomes for students and oversee the work of the Executive Officers.

Our school has a Local Governing Body (LGB) and its responsibilities are detailed below.

Local Governing Bodies

Every Crofty MAT School is accountable to the Trust Board. A Local Governing Body is perfectly positioned to facilitate this and to ensure that their school can realistically meet the requirements of the Trust. The LGB will use its detailed knowledge and engagement with stakeholders to ensure that their school is being well served by the Trust’s executive leadership, and the LGB has direct access to the board if there are concerns.

School governors communicate and work in conjunction with the Board to provide a vital link and additional level of accountability. The LGB has delegated responsibility for standards and outcomes in our school, for safeguarding and its relationships with external stakeholders, especially parents. The Chairs of LGBs are held to account by the Board for outcomes in those areas and its core role is as follows:

Core Role

  • Focus on consistently improving outcomes for all pupils but especially for disadvantaged pupils.
  • Provide challenge and support to leaders at all levels in the school.
  • Monitor the performance and progress of the school, agreeing strategies to achieve continuous improvement and monitoring the School Improvement Plan.
  • Strategic oversight of the curriculum.
  • Take all aspects of safeguarding and well -being seriously and appoint a designated Safeguarding governor.
  • Conduct an annual self- evaluation of the impact and effectiveness of the governing body and the school’s improvement activities.
  • Promote Trust vision, policies and priorities

The LGB will use its detailed knowledge and engagement with stakeholders to ensure that their school is being well served by the executive leadership, and has direct access to the board if there are concerns.

The Local Governing Body of Rosemellin Primary School are all volunteers who give up their time to represent the community and to help shape the direction and aims of the School.
