Meet our Local Advisory Board – Governors

In This Section

The Governors plays a vital role in the life of the school in making sure every child gets the best possible education. Their role is to support the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school.

Governors have a strong focus on 3 core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring a clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

They meet together as a Local Governing Body twice a term which focus on specific areas of school life such as Finance & Personnel, Curriculum and Standards, Premises Health and Safety. Our Chair of Governors also attends meetings held by the Bradgate Education Parternship to receive trust updates.

In addition, each Governor is expected to make regular visits to school to meet the children, participate in aspects of school life, and monitor the implementation of the School Development Plan.  All Governors hold their office for a period of four years. The Chair of Governors can always be contacted via the school office.

Correspondence for the Chair of Governors (Mrs Sally Collins) should be sent to the school address. They will be forwarded by the School Office to the Chair of Governors.
