Having been a governor at Warden Hill since 2003, I am often asked who governors are and what they do. Anyone with an interest in the school can apply to become a governor and we want to be sure to attract a group of people with a diverse set of skills so that we can best fulfil our role.
The Governing Body is made up of parents, staff and representatives from the local community. We can also appoint associate members to give advice on specific aspects where appropriate. We work as a team, both as a full Governing Body and also in committees, where a lot of the in-depth work is done.
The Head Teacher and Senior Leadership Team manage the day to day running of the school and we work with them to determine the school’s aims, policies and future direction. Our job is to ask questions, give advice and ensure that the school is run as well as possible. This is all done with the intention of giving the pupils at Warden Hill Primary School the best education possible. As volunteers, we are, and need to be, passionate about this as we have to fit our governor commitments around busy work and home lives.
In the Governors section of the website you can find out more about who’s who and which committee we are on. If there is something you would like to bring to our attention, you are welcome to talk to any member or to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If, having read this, you are interested in hearing more about becoming a governor, please leave a message at the school or contact me on the group email address above. In addition please click here to read the Parent Governor Guidelines.
Chair of Governors,
Warden Hill Primary School
