The Dundonald School Governing Body meets twice a term to support and assists the Headteacher and her team with the management of the school.

Some of the Governors are parents, but others are nominated by the council or are supporters of the school from the local community. 
The Governing Body has also a number of Dundonald staff on board as can be seen from the Governor's membership list

What Governors do
Governors help the school set priorities, develop detailed plans and monitor progress. We have committees that focus on the curriculum, personnel, finance and premises and these groups help the school develop its policies and procedures. Recently we were involved in developing our new behaviour and discipline policy and the new homework policy.

The Governing Body also sets up project groups as needed. These groups often involve parents who are not governors, as well as teaching and non teaching staff. For example we got lots of parents and friends of Dundonald involved in looking at ways of improving our equality planning which came up with some great ideas which everyone benefitted from. We also had a group that oversaw the development of our new school prospectus and we will probably set up a new team next term to oversee improvements to our kitchen and canteen  -  more on that later.

If you would like to get a bit more involved in these or other aspects of school life, we would love to hear from you.
Let the school office know and one of the Governors will contact you. 

Meanwhile we will keep you informed through the school newsletter.
