Governors of Shoreham Village School

As Governors, we aim to provide all children at Shoreham Village School with the confidence and academic skills that will enable them to reach their own personal goals.

 

Our skills are varied, we come from different walks of life and volunteer our time for meetings, monitoring visits, training and other activities, but we have a common objective to help the school become the best it can. To this end, we are committed to supporting our Head Teacher to manage the school in such a way that it provides a learning environment that encourages all our pupils to make progress academically and socially.

 

Working closely with the Headteacher, we aim to:

  • Support all the staff who are dedicated to inspiring our pupils
  • Engage with parents, carers and the wider community in a partnership where all opinions are valued
  • Create a caring, friendly and supportive school where children can reach their learning objectives

 

The Governing body meets six times a year – once a term – to review the performance of the school. In addition we make monitoring visits which focus on some aspect of the School Plan and these are reported back to our meetings. Regular training is undertaken to ensure we achieve the high standards required of a successful governing body.

 

We are also responsible for approving and monitoring the school budget, completing an annual Health and safety audit, and maintaining and improving the school’s premises.

 

The safety and wellbeing of the children and the quality of teaching and learning is at the heart of our activities. We are committed to providing an education that meets the needs of each child in a safe and supportive environment.

 

Shoreham Village School Governing Body consists of governors comprising parents, co-opted governors, one local education authority governor, one staff governor and the Headteacher.
