Governors

The Role of the Governors

Expectation of governing bodies and their leadership is significant. OFSTED are clear about the importance of strong, effective leadership. Governors are appointed by a variety of means, but once appointed are expected to be of equal status and responsibility. They play a vital role as the school works through the difficult environment common to much of the public sector, which is how to deliver continuing improvement whilst managing within a diminishing financial resource. Being a member of the governing body requires knowledge of both board-level strategic leadership skills and corporate governance.

The Brodetsky Governing Body is made up of 10 members; 6 members are appointed by the Brodetsky Foundation Trust, 1 member is the Head Teacher, 1 member is appointed by the Local Authority, 1 member is an elected member of staff and 1 member is an elected parent governor. There is also scope for the governing body to co-opt 4 additional members for a year, should it be required. Currently there are 4 subcommittees of the governing body, to which certain functions are delegated. The structures of the committees and chairs (in bold) are below:

Pupil Support: Lisa Baker, Helen Lewis, Jason Brock, SB and the new staff governor;
Teaching & Learning: Jason Broch, Susy Jagger, Lisa Lee, Sharon Bhogal;
Resources: Henry Cohen, Alan Dunwell, Susy Jagger & MH;
Limudei Kodesh: Daniel Cohen, Jason Kleiman, Helen Lewis, Sagi Yechezkel, Susy Jagger, Lindsay Seaton

It is expected that each governor will be part of one or more of these subcommittees as part of fulfilling the role.

The current membership of the Brodetsky Governing body is:

Dr Jason I Broch, Chair of GB & Chair of Teaching & Learning (Foundation Governor)
Lisa Baker, Vice Chair & Chair of Pupil Support (Local Authority Governor)
