Federation Governing Board

Since 1st January 2020, Moss Hall Infant and Junior Schools have become a federation of 2 schools.  The former individual Governing Boards of both schools have been dissolved and a single Governing Board created for the federation.

The Constitution of the Federation Governing Board was set out in our consultation and is as follows:
  • 15 members comprising - Executive Headteacher, Local Authority Governor, Staff Governor, 2 x Parent Governors (1 from each school).

The above members are set out by statute and their numbers cannot be altered (i.e. the schools cannot elect more than 1 Parent Governor each).

In addition, the federation will have:
  • 10 Co-opted Governors (of which it is anticipated a minimum of 5 will be parents at any time and 1 will be a Staff Member from the school not to elect a staff governor).

The Governing Board has three main functions:
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the schools and making sure their money is well spent.

  • Holding the Executive Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the schools and their pupils.

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.

  • The day to day running of the schools remains the responsibility of the Executive Headteacher and her Leadership teams.

  • Governing Board meetings are open to observers and dates and times of upcoming meetings will be published on our website and in our newsletters with minutes made available after meetings also on the school’s websites.

The new Governing Board is committed to working with the entire school community in order to provide a coherent and ambitious learning journey for all children across our schools.
