The Governing Body


The Governing Body at Handsworth has been awarded Governor Mark, which is a national award providing an external evaluation of the quality of governance in a school.  We are the only school in Waltham Forest to have achieved this quality mark.

Handsworth’s Governing Body supports the school and the Head Teacher. We aim to ensure the school has clear aims and values that are championed by the whole school community. All the work we do has pupil achievement and progress and school improvement at its heart. We work with the Head Teacher and staff in raising standards of achievement, establishing high expectations and promoting effective teaching and learning so that every pupil achieves to the best of his or her ability.

The Governing Body has a role to play in monitoring and evaluating how the school is progressing and in this role, we aim to strike a balance between supporting and challenging. We recognise and celebrate the achievements of the school and we provide support and promote encouraging strategies to bring about improvement. We are accountable to the whole school community for the performance of the school.

When do we meet and how do we work?

Our full Governing Body meets at least once and sometimes twice a term. In order to delegate and share the responsibilities of the Governing Body effectively, we have two committees which meet separately from the full Governing Body once every half term. These committees are; Resources (which includes Finance, Personnel and Premises) and Teaching and Learning.

Every Governor at Handsworth takes on a Link Governor role which allows individuals to focus on a key area in the school, for example, literacy, numeracy, ICT or Health & Safety. Link Governors get to know one area of the school in more detail and reports from each link area enable the Governing Body to learn more about the school and provide information which supports strategic decisions around school improvement.
