Want to get involved?

We currently have vacancies for parent governors, any parent is very welcome to apply to be a governor. However, the governing body benefits from having a good balance of skills amongst the members, so if you have a financial/accounting or legal background or have experience in teaching and learning in another school or working with young people elsewhere, we would be particularly interested to hear from you. For further information please contact Sue Hughes, Clerk, s.hughes@nunnerywood.worcs.sch.uk or telephone the school and speak with Helen West, Headteacher’s P.A. 01905 363623.

What do Nunnery’s governors do?

The purpose of the Governing Body is to ensure that Nunnery Wood provides a high quality of education for its students in a positive and supportive learning environment.   We aim to act as ‘critical friends’ to the Headteacher and SLT.

There are three core strands:

  • Consideration of the strategic direction for the school
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its’ students
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure that the money available to the school is well-spent.

So, governors do not run the school, but they are responsible for ensuring that it is run well by the Headteacher and staff.

Who are Nunnery’s governors?

The Governing Body is made up of up to 21 governors, including the Headteacher, staff governors, parent governors, a governor nominated by the Local Authority and some ‘Other’ governors, who have been co-opted by the Governors.  Many of these ‘other’ governors have been parents of students who have completed their time at Nunnery Wood.  We aim to keep a mix of different skills and interests on the governing body; governors have experience from a variety of different professions/industries and sectors – see Governors’ Register of Interests and Background.

How are they organised?

The Full Governing Body meets 4 times a year:  in September (including a focus on exam results), December (including a focus on the financial accounts) and once in each of the spring and summer terms.

In addition, there are 3 main committees of the governors.  Each of these committees meets at least once a term.

Outcomes Committee:  looks at educational performance; ensuring the school provides a safe and secure environment; and that school is proactive in students’ moral and social development.

Resources Committee: considers finance, staffing and premises issues.

Steering Committee: a small group of governors consider the strategic direction (making recommendations to the full Governing Body) and the activities of the governing body.

Other committees would meet if necessary e.g. considering the exclusion of a student; disciplinary or grievance appeals in relation to staff; consideration of complaints

Most governors also have a ‘link’ to a key aspect of the school such as SEN or safeguarding and are responsible for liaising with senior staff regarding the implementation of policies and procedures.
