Springfield School governing body is made up of a group of volunteers who work tirelessly for the good of the school by overseeing all strategic matters relating to school life. Its key functions are to:
- set the aims and objectives for the school
- set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
- set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
- monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
- be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)
The Full Local Governing Board meets on average five times a year. There are also two sub-committees that meet in between the full board meetings.
HR and Finance
This committee deals with all matters relating to school finance, including budget setting and monitoring. The committee also considers personnel matters.
Progress and Well Being
This committee deals with all matters relating to the curriculum and the progress and attainment of pupils. The committee also has responsibility for any health and safety matters.
As the school is co-located with Madley Brook Community School governors also meet with governors from that school three times a year, to discuss matters that affect both schools in a joint executive committee.
