Welcome to the Rushmore Governors page. This page will tell you who the governors are and what we do.

There are 4 sorts of Governors;

Parent Governors are elected by parents then we have Staff Governors elected by the Teaching & Support Staff then LA Governors who are given to us by the Local Authority and lastly Community Governors who are from the wider community.

At Rushmore we have 2 sub committees:

The Curriculum & Standards and the Finance and Resources Committees. These committees feed back into the full GB meeting. We meet twice a term for Full GB meetings and also committee meetings.

What do school governors do?

  • Supporting the school in planning for the future and setting targets for school improvement

  • Promoting high standards of educational attainment

  • Challenging and supporting the Head Teacher

  • Planning, reviewing and approving  the schools budget

  • Developing and reviewing policies and most importantly monitoring pupil achievement and ensuring standards improve.

  • Participate in the appointment of senior staff (including appointing the Head Teacher) and regulate staff conduct and discipline
