The Governing Body
The Governing Body of Hasland Hall Community School
The Governing Body is made up of a diverse group of people who offer a wide range of skills. The expertise within the group enables us to form balanced judgements which are in the best interests of the students and the school.
Governors play an important role in the development of the school. They are involved in: the curriculum, recruitment of staff, deciding how the school money is spent, making sure the school meets the needs of the students and the community.
As well as meetings of the full Governing Body, we have the following specialised group Committees: Finance and Premises, Teaching and Learning, Personnel and Pay Sub-Committee.
One of the prime focuses of the Governing Body is to build closer links with students, parents/carers and staff and to ensure that our school maintains the ethos of caring and inclusion, whilst continuing to improve standards.
The school is governed in accordance with the legal requirements for a Community School by a Governing Body of up to 12 Governors. We chose to have 18 Governors which consist of:
5 Parent Governors
1 LA Governor
1 Staff Governor
10 Co-opted Governors
The term of office for all Governors is four years except for the Headteacher who decides whether to be on the Governing Body or not. At the beginning of the Autumn Term the Governing Body elect a Chair and Vice-Chair to serve for a period of one year.

Year 11 Parents’ Evening provides parents with a valuable opportunity to speak to teachers about their son/daughter’s progress. We would, therefore, ask that all parents attend. Students will be booking appointment times for their parents between 4.15pm and 7pm. If for particular reasons you are unable to attend, please contact the school to arrange an alternative time.
We would like to invite parents of all Year 9 students to come into school on Wednesday 23 January at 7pm to attend the GCSE Guided Choices Evening. The evening provides an opportunity for you to find out more about the Key Stage 4 Curriculum and the subjects that are part of it. Subject teachers and the Careers Advisers will be attending to answer your questions and offer advice. We look forward to seeing you.
The Community Craft Club meets every Thursday from 6.00pm in the School dining room. The aim is to bring together people from the community who would like to share the enjoyment of crafting. They are currently undertaking a variety of craft projects which will lead to a sale for charity.
If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Bev Kershaw on 01246 273985 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
