Governors

Bedelsford School has a Local Governing Body (LGB) which has been given certain delegated responsibilities by the Orchard Hill College Academy Trust (OHCAT) Board of Directors through a Scheme of Delegation. Some of the LGB’s key responsibilities are:

Setting the strategic direction of the school by:
• Ensuring the values, aims and objectives for the school are aligned to those of OHCAT
• Implementing the policy framework for achieving the agreed aims and objectives
• Setting statutory targets
• Agreeing the school improvement strategy

Challenging and supporting the school by monitoring, reviewing and evaluating:
• The implementation and effectiveness of the policy framework
• Progress towards targets
• The implementation and effectiveness of the school improvement strategy
• The budget and the staffing structure

Ensuring accountability by:
• Monitoring the school’s self-evaluation documentation
• Responding to Ofsted reports when necessary
• Holding the Principal to account for the performance of the school
• Ensuring parents/carers and pupils are involved, consulted and informed as appropriate
• Making information available to the community

The LGB generally meets once a term and comprises people from the community with relevant skills and experience, parent and staff governors.

Additionally, the LGB has established a Pay Committee comprised of the Chair of the LGB and two further governors – these will be the HR portfolio holder and the Finance portfolio holder unless circumstances do not permit. The Pay Committee meets once a year to consider the Principal’s salary recommendations for all teaching staff, and to ensure that all pay decisions have been made in line with OHC&AT’s Pay Policy and OHC&AT’s Appraisal Policy.

The school is truly ‘outstanding’ indeed and we don’t mean just in the sense of how Ofsted have classified it.
