Governors - What We Do
The Governors of our school are from a variety of backgrounds and are a committed group, who know the school's strengths and weaknesses. They give their time willingly to support our school.
Governors work with the Headteacher and staff to ensure that the children's learning is at the centre of all that we do in school. They are "critical friends", attending meetings, school activities and lessons, ensuring that the children thrive.
Governors also help to manage the budget, to enable us to invest in staff, resources and facilities to provide a well-balanced and stimulating education for the children that has value for money.
There are several sub-committees that regularly meet to discuss and formalise systems and policies on key areas of the school. In addition, there are specific governor responsibilities like SEN, Key Stage coordinator and safeguarding where we liaise with the designated person on all issues concerned with the teaching and learning of that aspect.
The Governors have supported the introduction of Big Write and My Maths and are monitoring their impact. They are also involved in all school recruitment. As a result the school continues to thrive and grow as all the children achieve their potential.
