School Governance Committee

School Governance Committee

School Governance Committee (SGC) members are interested members of the community, including parents of children at the school.

The current membership reflects a wide range of expertise and interest, and includes representation from parents; teaching and non-teaching staff and British Forces South Atlantic Islands.

We work with the Head Teacher and school staff to assist in making key decisions vital to the successful running of the school, contribute to decisions directly affecting the education and wellbeing of pupils, assist in improving standards throughout the school and monitor the school budget.

The SGC meets once a term as a whole committee to review and discuss school business, and represent the views of parents.

Main Roles:

Provide a strategic overview

Act as a Critical Friend

Ensure Accountability

We do not act as the first line for complaints about any aspect of the school and its day to day work. The school should be contacted directly either via the class teacher or Head Teacher.

Please note that SGCs in MOD schools vary in their activities compared to Governing bodies in the UK, where the Governors have greater executive responsibility in the management of schools including employment of staff.

These are examples of how the School Governance Committee (SGC) has made positive impact on the education of pupils, on parents and staff.
