The governing body of Earls Colne Primary School and Nursery has a constitution which is in accordance with its instruments of government. The governors are responsible for the school and represent the parents, the County Council and the Local Authority.
The School Governing body is made up of volunteers from the local community (co-opted), Parents, Staff and Local Authority. All Governors serve for a period of four years. All the parents of children in the school are both eligible to stand for the position of Parent Governor when a vacancy occurs and vote in a secret ballot at a Parent Governor election.
The Governors are actively involved in all aspects of school life.
They are the school's accountable body, who oversee policy and practices to ensure the school functions to the highest possible standard. The Governing Body holds the Headteacher to account for the performance of the school.
To monitor and evaluate performance and progress, the school Governors meet regularly, once a term both as a full body and as committees. These meetings will discuss all aspects of the school's performance including absence rates, results, complaints, involvement with the community, the curriculum, staffing, training courses, school budget, health and safety and the school's improvement plan.
Governors visit the school regulary and participate in actitivies, attend events or meet with Teachers. These visits enable Governors to ensure best practice is in place and being followed as well as ensuring that the school is progressing the school improvement plan.
