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 Board of Governors meets monthly. They discuss and agree a range of issues including HR and Finance (all matters relating to school finance, including budget setting and monitoring as well as personnel matters) and Progress and Well being (all matters relating to the curriculum and the progress and attainment of pupils as well as any health & 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 co-location working group.
