Governors at East Borough Primary School are recruited from the local community, parents, staff and the local authority and are all highly valued for the skills, experience and objectivity that they bring to the decision-making process of the school. All of our Governors are people who have an interest in the role of school and wish to make a positive contribution to the effective day-to-day running and the educational achievements of the children. Our Governors do not have governance roles in any other schools.
The Governing Body work in partnership with the Head Teacher, Local Authority and local community to help provide the best possible education.
We are committed to:
- Achieving outstanding educational outcomes
- High expectations to ensure children realise their potential
- Continuous improvement, growing and developing, leading in collaboration opportunities, sharing and benefiting from best practice and wider resources
- High emphasis on excellent pastoral care, emotional well being, inclusiveness, health of children and support for families
Governors are expected to play three key roles:
Establishing the vision, mission and values of the school, reviewing the strategic agenda of the school, ensuring that plans support the overall vision, setting ambitious targets and driving improvement on all fronts
Acting as a Critical Friend
Challenging the leadership team in improving teaching and learning and supporting the development of a high quality curriculum and raising standards of pupil achievement. Supporting the Head Teacher and staff and building on their expectations to ensure that the best possible outcomes for children are achieved.
