Governors & Committees

Our job as Governors is to help you to get the best possible education for your children whilst they are at Westfield.

The Governors have overall responsibility for the Academy and work in partnership with both the Headteacher and Department of Education. We do not get involved in the day-to-day management of the school – that is left to the expertise of the Headteacher and his team. We work with the school to:-

  • Determine the strategy and direction of the school (e.g. as a well-attended and popular community technology college, being seen to achieve high standards).
  • Establish priorities and approve plans and budgets (e.g. review and approval of the annual development plan drawn up by the Head and his/her team).
  • Set targets and monitor progress (e.g. we want the school to achieve high standards of education and for these to be reflected in annual targets and trends).
  • Support the Headteacher and the school (e.g. over issues such as transport and admissions).
  • Ensure that the required policies and procedures are in place (e.g. personnel, pay, special needs and equal opportunities).
