There are four categories of governor, appointed by different groups that have an interest in the school. These are Community, LA (Cardiff Council appointed), Parent and Staff governors. All governors have equal status.
We are committed to providing a positive environment for all pupils to enjoy during their time at our school.

Governing Bodies: Their Powers, Duties and Relationships
1. Glyncoed Governing Body is a corporate body which has a legal identity separate from that of its members.
2. This means individual governors are protected from personal liability as a result of the Governing Body’s decisions and actions. Provided they act honestly, reasonably and in good faith, any liability will fall on the Governing Body even if it has exceeded its powers, rather than on individual members.
3. Individual governors, groups of governors or committees have no power or right to act on behalf of the governing body, except where the Governing Body has agreed to delegate a specific function to that individual, group of governors or committee; or where regulations specify that a function is to be exercised in a particular way.
4. The Governing Body remains legally liable for all actions taken in its name by individuals or committees to which it has delegated functions. It should therefore ensure that decisions to delegate specific responsibilities are clear and that the scope and provisions of such delegations are properly and fully recorded in the Minutes.
5. The governing body as a whole is insured. The LA will either pay for such insurance from central funds or it may include funding for this in the school’s delegated budget.
The Conduct of Governors
Governing bodies and individual governors should act at all times with honesty and integrity and be ready to explain their actions and decisions to staff, pupils, parents and anyone with a legitimate interest in the school. Governors must be aware that minutes and papers of governing body meetings should, as soon as reasonably practicable after a meeting, be made available for anyone to see them at the school (Approved and Non Confidential content only).
Glyncoed has a strict Code of Conduct Policy which our governors sign up to on an annual basis.
Some times a parent, staff member, pupil or someone in the community may raise a concern or make a complaint.
All governing bodies must have and must publish procedures for dealing with complaints.
If you believe you have a serious complaint that has not been resolved by approaching the school, the Governing Body will investigate however it can only do so if you submit a formal complaint.
All formal complaints MUST be submitted using the forms found in the Complaints Policy and Procedure: https://www.glyncoedprimary.co.uk/school-policies-and-key-documents/
