16 Dec School Governors Confidentiality Agreement
Governors are responsible for the establishment, monitoring and review of the general policies, plans and procedures in which the school operates. Governors should be aware of the procedures established by the governing body to respond to criticism or complaints about the school. Governors should act as a team and always in the best interests of the school. This code of conduct should serve as a basis for clarifying the behaviour and behaviour expected by all headteachers. While it is recognized that each governing body operates and operates differently depending on the type of school, there is a general expectation for the standard of behaviour, which is acceptable. The purpose of this code of conduct is to articulate this expectation in a framework easily understood by all governors. If governors are unable to attend meetings, they should ensure that the Chair and Administrator are communicated to the governors prior to the meeting. Governors have a duty to know the school and are encouraged to interfere in school activities. Visits to the school are carried out within the framework of the governing body and are agreed with the principal.
(In the case of school officials, this means that they do not want to adopt a policy or approach solely because they benefit family or a friend or a certain group of school actors, and they are aware that the reason for this function benefits all children in school and does not isolate a particular group. In cases where a governor has a financial or immediate interest, they should explain it, withdraw from the meeting and not participate in the decision-making process). Governors are required to declare personal or financial conflicts of interest arising from a matter before governors or any other aspect of the governor`s office and should not use their position as governor for the benefit of themselves or other persons or agencies. The governing body is accountable to the Community: those who founded and funded the school and the parents and the general public of how it will carry out its functions. In the longer term, the governing body must also be accountable to the students of the school. Policies and procedures that your individual school or trust must follow. The strength of a governing body lies in the talents and commitment of its members and their ability to work together as a team for the good of the school.
