The Governors plays a vital role in the life of the school in making sure every child gets the best possible education. Their role is to support the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school.
Governors have a strong focus on 3 core strategic functions:
- Ensuring a clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
They meet together as a Local Advisory Board twice a term and also meet as working parties to look at areas of the school in more detail e.g. finance.
In addition, each Governor is expected to make regular visits to school to meet the children, participate in aspects of school life, and monitor the implementation of the School Development Plan. All Governors hold their office for a period of four years. The Chair of Governors can always be contacted via the school office.
Our Governors come from a range of backgrounds and each brings a unique set of skills to enhance the work of the school. There are different categories of Governor. Staff Governors are elected by the school staff, Parent Governor positions are advertised to all parents when a vacancy arises and are then elected by parents if there are more candidates than positions. Co-opted Governors are appointed by the Governing Body after skills analysis has taken place.
Our Chair of Governor position is shared by Mrs Charlotte Simpson and Mrs Vicky Haig. Should you need to contact either of them please contact the school office who will be more than happy to forward and correspondence.
