Wellfield Methodist and Anglican Church School


The Governing Body of Wellfield School meets four times a term - once each for Standards and Effectiveness (SEC), Curriculum and Resources Committees and once as the Full Governing Body. There are also various smaller sub-committees that meet regularly and these meetings are not included in the attendance figures. It is responsible for setting the strategic framework of the school and monitoring its implementation. It acts as a 'critical friend' by holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils. The Governing Body also oversees the finances of the school; making sure money is well spent.
