The Governing Body

The Governing Body of the Riverside Federation (Etchingham C E School & Bodiam C E School) is made up of volunteers from the local community, parents, teaching and support staff, the Children’s Services Agency (LEA) and the Diocese of Chichester. We meet regularly, both as a full body and in committees, to assist the smooth running of the school and to promote the highest possible standards to ensure that every child in our care reaches their full potential. We work in close partnership with the Headteacher, setting aims and objectives for the school, adopting and reviewing policies to achieve those aims and outlining clear targets. Our role is seen as a ‘critical friend’, offering constructive advice and support.

 

Whilst the Headteacher has responsibility for the internal organisation, daily management and control of the school, Governors have statutory duties and a responsibility to monitor the impact of teaching and learning. We assist with self-evaluation and continuing school development.

 

This is a challenging but most rewarding role. We welcome a wide range of experience and skills amongst our dedicated members.

 

Should you require any further information about the work of the Governing Body or are interested in becoming a Governor should a vacancy occur, please contact the Chair of Governors via the school office.
