Governors

It is the duty of the Governing Body to make decisions about how the school is run. Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities as a body but cannot act individually.

The Governing Body believe the aims of the school as set out in this Prospectus should continue to be pursued. Underpinning these aims is Blaenbaglan’s philosophy, that all our pupils are entitled to the very best education possible, which the school endeavours to provide, in close partnership with parents.
Each term the following sub-committees meet and report back to the main Governing Body meeting:
  • Finance and Staffing
  • Curriculum and Special Needs
  • Buildings, Premises, Health & Safety and Community
  • School performance and attendance
  • Performance management
Other issues relating to the budget, pupil activities, school performance and the Learning Support Centre are discussed. They can only act together, not individually. Parent Governors are elected by the parents of the school. They serve, as do other governors, for a period of 4 years. Parent Governors bring the views of parents to the governing body. However, they are not delegates for parents, as they speak and act as individuals.
