Welcome to our Governors’ section.
Circle Model Of Governance
The Tibshelf Infant & Nursery School Governing Body operates a circle model of governance where the governing body works as a ‘whole team’ without any committees, and meets once a minimum of 6 times a year. This means that governors have up to date information regarding the school, and can offer timely support and challenge, as well as take action should the need arise.
Link governors are assigned to monitor subjects which have been identified as strategic priorities in the School Improvement Plan (SIP), as well as: Safeguarding, SEND, Health & Safety, and Finance.
There are also committees which deal with: Pay Panel, Pupil Discipline and Exclusion, Staff Dismissal; Barring of a Parent from the School Premises; Applications for Special Leave; Complaints; Grievances; Pay Appeals;. These committees are only formed as and when required.
Any communications for the Governing Body should be addressed to:
