On the 1st September 2014, the Children and Families Act 2014 introduced a new framework for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) so that services consistently support the best outcomes for them.
All Local Authorities are required to publish information on 'the Local Offer' about all SEND services. To view Liverpool's Local Offer, please click here.
Every Liverpool primary school belongs to a consortium of schools. Consortia meet together to plan how to support their pupils with special educational needs and disabilities. Each consortia meets, at least once a term, to plan how they will use additional resources, share good practice and plan training that can help staff in schools to meet the needs of pupils on the special educational needs register.
Childwall Church of England Primary School Governing Body is responsible for raising school standards through their four core strategic functions:
The Governing Body works in partnership with our Headteacher, staff, parents,
Local Authority and the Diocese towards the continuing improvement in standards and achievements at our school. The School Development Plans (SDP) supports this process.
As a body we meet regularly and our members are involved in committees that deal with the school’s finance, personnel and performance, admissions, premises, vision and values, standards and quality. Each committee meets at least once a term.
A lot of work goes on outside of the formal committee meetings with Governors scrutinising results, visiting classes and events, speaking to teachers, parents and staff, attending training, receiving reports and updates from the Headteacher and ensuring they know every aspect of the school.
Our governors work to agreed Terms of Reference which are reviewed each year. These set out the duties and responsibilities in detail and which they agree to follow each year.
A number of the governors are link governors which means they have a particular responsibility for an area of the curriculum and meet regularly with the subject leader.
The Governors are supported in their work by the Clerk to Governors who attends the committee meetings in a non-voting capacity.
