Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governor’s Page

The bright and vivid colours you see on the website are a reflection of what you will find in school – a warm, safe, welcoming and stimulating environment where the staff enjoy working and the pupils love learning.

I also think it reflects the enthusiasm and commitment of the governors who play an important role in school life. We are responsible for supporting the school by setting the strategic direction and objectives of the school and developing policies and procedures to enable the staff to achieve them. Once this has been done we then monitor the activities of the school to ensure that they are meeting the targets set.

Our governing body is made up of parent governors, staff governors and co-opted governors plus the head teacher. We formally meet once a term as a full Governing Body and have two committees, Finance & Resources and Strategic & Pastoral, that meet when necassary. Each governor has a link with a member of the school staff to keep them informed about their subject area. We receive support from the Governor Services department at the Local Authority who also provide excellent training courses to help us fulfil our roles and responsibilities.

Whilst we have to deal with a lot of formal stuff we have fun at the same time and enjoy visiting the school and the children. Some governors also act as volunteers in school.

If you would like to know more about being a governor please contact me via the school and I would be happy to meet with you and talk about being a governor.
