Meet the Governors

Welcome to our governors' section.

Our aim is to create a safe and happy learning environment. We think of our school community as being a team in which staff, children, parents and governors work closely together. We want the best for your child just as you do, ensuring they have a solid foundation on which to build their future education.

During the school year there will be times set aside for parents and staff to get together and discuss any concerns there may be about your child’s progress.

Governing Body Current Composition as of 29.02.2016

The different categories of governors on our governing body are:

  • parent governors who have a child in school at the time of their election, and are elected by the parents with children at the school;

  • staff governors who are members of staff at the school and are elected by their colleagues;

  • co-opted governors are appointed on to the governing body by the other members because they come from a specialist group, such as the business community or because they possess a particular skill which can contribute to the effective governance and success of the school;

  • local authority(LA) governors who are nominated by the local councillor and appointed by the governing body;

  • the Headteacher (HT) is also a member of the governing body by right of the position they hold in the school;

  • associate members are not actually governors but can be appointed to serve on committees and attend meetings of the full governing body. They do not have the right to vote at meetings of the full governing body but may been given voting rights on the committees that they are a member of, but these rights can only be given by the governing body.

 

The different committees our governing body has are:

  • Finance

  • School Effectiveness

  • Buildings

  • Welfare and Staffing

  • HT Performance Management

There are also separate disciplinary and appeals committees which are convened if they are required

Register of Personal, pecuniary or business interests

 

 

All the governors and associate members of Light Oaks Infant School listed above have signed the Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests. This is a declaration of any personal or business interest they or any relative or person closely connected with them, have with businesses or other organisations that may have dealings with the school; having a relative working in or for school or being a governor of another school.  If any interest a governor has could be seen to cause a conflict of interest, they would be asked to withdraw from any decision making concerned.  This is to ensure that our governors can always be seen to be putting the best interests of the school first.  If there is a potential conflict, it is shown below.

 

 

More information about the requirements to complete and sign the Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests can be found on Salford City Council's Governor Services web pages at http://www.salford.gov.uk/schoolgovernors.htm where you will also find the links to all the other local authority's (LA's) governing bodies' personal, pecuniary or business interest registers.
