Governors

Welcome                                                                                                                 

The role of the Board of Governors is to work closely with the Head teacher and staff to provide the very best education that we can for the children of our school. We are responsible for monitoring and evaluating the performance and effectiveness of the school, for ensuring that the budget is managed prudently and for supporting our excellent staff.   As governors, we want all our children to develop to their full potential academically and socially, so that they become responsible and caring adults in their later lives.                                                                                

 

Governors achievements have been: 

  • Continued to set the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school
  • Held senior leaders to account for school improvement
  • Ensured financial resources are well spent
  • Engaged with a governance review to focus on developing ourselves as a governing body and attend training
  • Carried out a skills audit of all governors so that we have a balanced range of skills
  • Taken on individual responsibilities, such as monitoring English and Mathematics; pupil premium, appraisal, pay committee and health & safety. 
  • Assisting School with Ofsted report.

 

Governors plans for the future are: 

  • Our focus for this year is on safeguarding.
  • Specify the monitoring we need to see and do, to ensure pupil progress is in line with expectations.
