The School Stakeholder Group (SSG) normally meet once a term to receive reports from the Headteacher on the life and work of the school. Members of staff also report to the SSG at the termly meetings, and this usually takes the form of an in-depth look at some of the aspects of the whole school curriculum.
Every school in the UK has a team of governors which is made up of parents, teachers and people from the local community. School governors are chosen by the existing governing body, by other parents from the school, or by other members of staff from the school.
The school governors at Westcott Primary School not only meet on a regular basis, but they also regularly spend time at the school being involved in learning walks, celebrating achievement and talking to parents, pupils and staff. The aim of this is so that they can see for themselves what happens in school on a daily basis and challenge the leaders in school to make life even better for all the children.
