The Uplands Primary School and Nursery Board of Governors are a diverse group of people, all volunteers, with a common interest in the school and nursery; its staff, pupils and buildings and the community of which it forms a part. Each Governor brings different strengths and skills to the Governing Board, but all have a commitment to helping the school.
The full governing body meets 13 times each year. Currently meetings are held on a Tuesday at 7pm.
The governors focus strongly on three core functions:
Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
Holding Senior Leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff, and
Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
To help carry out these core functions, there are some sub committees, including Pay and Personnel, and from time to time a number of working parties.
