As a Hard Federation, both Oakham C of E Primary School and The Parks School share a Governing Body which meets each term.The Governors are similar to directors in a business, and act as ‘critical friends’ to the Executive Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team. Governors work with the Executive Headteacher on strategic and developmental issues, and on target setting, performance management and appraisal. They visit the schools to meet members of the Senior Leadership Team and to carry out their responsibilities in terms of monitoring and providing oversight. However, the Executive Headteacher alone is responsible for the day to day management of the schools. Minutes of Full Governing Body meetings and committee meetings are available, if required, in the school office. If you have any comment for, or need to contact, the Governing Body please email: email@example.com or leave a message at the school office.

Committee StructureOur Governing Body uses a committee structure to undertake our monitoring and evaluation role. The membership and terms of reference of committees are reviewed annually. The committees are: Provisions, Resources and Pay Review. Some of our committees are given delegated powers to make decisions that do not require approval from the full Governing Body. In addition, like many governing bodies, we sometimes form working groups to focus on specific problems or issues.
