"The governors bring a wealth of experience to support school improvement. They know the school well and share your passion for providing the very best care for the pupils. They offer focused support to leaders and challenge them effectively. This contributes to the development of the school."
OFSTED report July 2018
The Chair of Governors can be contacted by email on : firstname.lastname@example.org
The role of our governing body is to support and challenge the head teacher and the senior leadership team so that the vision that we have set for the school is both adopted and driven forward. I, as chair, have been very fortunate to have a governing body full of dedicated and professional governors. Their wealth of varied experience in both the education and commercial sectors has led to help the head teacher and myself manage the improvements that we have all seen in our school.
As governors, we are involved in all aspects of school life. The governors of the full governing body meets once a term. We also have a number of committees - Finance & Staffing, House and Curriculum - which also meet once per term and each are made up of approximately five governors. These committees provide reports and recommendations to the full governing body. Alongside this we also have Link governors who work closely with different educational areas within the school. These linked governors also provide reports to the full governing body so that we have a closer understanding of the subject areas.
