Governance

The role of the Governing Body at The Marvell College is to help the establishment fulfil its vision and values: a restorative and inclusive community, working together to achieve excellence for children.  PRIDE: polite, restorative, inclusive, determined, excellence everywhere.

There are many things which governors are expected to do.  The following provides a brief outline:

Governors have responsibility with the Headteacher for deciding, reviewing and monitoring many of the policies, plans and procedures within which the school operates

The governors’ role is strategic. The Headteachers role is both strategic and operational

It is important to recognise that governors are part of a team. They all have equal status and though they are appointed by different groups (parents, staff, The Hcat Academy Trust, etc.), their main concern is the welfare of the whole school.

Governors make decisions democratically, by consensus, do not have individual powers to act alone, have a duty to act fairly and without prejudice at all times.. They share the responsibility of appointing staff with the school and must act in the same way as any good employee.  Governors should consider carefully how their own decisions might affect other schools and should encourage openness in all of their work for the school and should welcome enquiries from parents and the general public

The governing body meets four times each academic year. During these meetings they systematically challenge leaders on all aspects of the school. This includes, but not exclusively, the effectiveness of:

Attainment and progress

Personal development, behaviour and welfare

Safeguarding

The quality of teaching and its impact over time

SMSC

The use of pupil premium funding

Governor Pen Portraits

Adele Norton - Staff Governor

Adele has worked in education since 2001, predominantly in the post 16 sector as the Sixth Form Learning Manager at St Mary’s College. In 2013 she moved to Bishop Burton College and coordinated support for both Further Education and Higher Education students with SEND across two sites.

Adele has a real interest in Special Educational Needs, particularly Autistic Spectrum disorders and is passionate about providing an environment in a mainstream setting that allows the needs of children with ASD to be met.

In 2015 Adele joined The Marvell College and has undertaken a variety of roles in the SEN, safeguarding and pastoral teams. She currently works in the Examination and Data Team.


Debbie Morrell – Parent Governor

I have lived on Bilton Grange the whole of my life and for the past 17 years I have owned a hairdressing salon, also on Bilton Grange. This gives me a very clear understanding of the needs of The Marvell College community very well. I have three, very different, teenagers  who have all attended The Marvell College.  I have been a governor at The Marvell College for 6 years and have seen it go through significant changes most recently its becoming an academy. I strongly believe every child deserves an outstanding education in a nurturing environment to be able to achieve their full potential.
