The Governing Body oversees the school’s management and aims to ensure that all children at the school get the best possible education and are able to make the most of all the opportunities that come their way.

Each month one of the Governors will make themselves available and will come into the school to find out how things are going, visit at least one class, chat with staff and parents and answer any questions relating to the school.

This page is designed to ensure you can recognise who our Governors are, which sub-committee they are assigned to and also to learn a little more about them. If there is something you would like to bring to the Governors’ attention, you are welcome to talk to any member or to email clerk@wardenhill.gloucs.sch.uk

If, having read this, you are interested in hearing more about becoming a Governor, please leave a message at the school or contact us on the email address above. In the meantime we hope you find this page useful and informative.

What do we do?

The Head Teacher and Senior Leadership Team manage the day-to-day running of the school. The Governors work with them to determine the aims, objectives and policies, in accordance with all the relevant legislations.  This involves looking at all the information and making decisions on, for example, the future direction of the school and how the budget should be spent. This is all done with the intention of giving the pupils at Warden Hill Primary School the best education possible. As Governors are volunteers, they need to be passionate about this as they often have to fit meetings in around busy work and/or home lives.

The Governing Body is made up of parents, staff, Local Education Authority representatives, and people who represent the local community and partnership angles. Associate members are also appointed to give advice on specific aspects where appropriate. Governors  work as a team, both as a Full Governing Body and in sub-committees (Business Committee and Curriculum and Standards Committee), where a lot of the in-depth work is done.
