The aim of the Governor team at our school is to work with the staff in helping the children achieve their full potential in a happy, caring environment.
We do this in four main ways:
• Working with the staff to help them teach and care for our children.
• Deciding on how the resources of the school are best used.
• Planning ahead so that the performance of our children and our school continues to improve.
To deliver this effectively the Governor team members are representative of all the key groups involved in our school – the Parents, the Staff, the Local Authority, the Community. Some are appointed and some are elected. All serve for a term of four years.
We meet together at least once a term as a whole team, and in three sub groups focused on Finance and Staffing, Buildings, Health and Safety, and the Task Force Committees. In addition we each have a specialist area that we take particular interest in (eg. Numeracy, Literacy, Science and Special Needs).
We are always keen to hear your views and I hope that this page will help you to understand better what we do, who we are and why we are serving as Governors.
