GOVERNORS

A governing body consists of a group of people from the local community, from all walks of life, who bring with them different viewpoints, experiences, knowledge, skills and ideas. They may be parents, staff at the school, local residents or representatives of local businesses, who work together as a team, with the headteacher and the leadership team to make sure the school provides their children with the best possible education - and constantly strives to improve.

School governors are a vital part of the leadership of their school. Their work is reported on in every school’s Ofsted inspection report. The purpose of governance is to provide confident, strategic leadership and to create robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance. They need to set high expectations and ask challenging questions, but are not expected to make day to day decisions about how the school is managed and run. That is the job of the headteacher and senior members of staff.

"Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it." Marlan Wright Edelman

CHAIR OF GOVERNORS


As a former Primary School headteacher, serving on the governing body at Bournehall has given me the opportunity to continue pursuing my interest in primary education.


I enjoy being actively involved in the school’s development and delight in the fact that Ofsted has recognised the achievement of Mrs Litchfield and her staff in providing outstanding educational provision for your children.

VICE CHAIR OF GOVERNORS


Becoming a Governor wasn’t difficult having left teaching after a career working in three sectors of education. It is ‘a hard act to follow.’ 


It’s not an unfamiliar role but nothing stands still.  That said, my two sons went through Bournehall in the late 1980’s, early 1990’s and, whilst teaching and learning have changed greatly, the heart of the school is the same. It’s very special.


I’m into sports, the arts and photography but above all, the future of my grandchildren and the world they will inherit.
