Thank you for visiting our section of the Whitehouse Primary School web site. We thought you might like to know more about us and about what we do. When you look at the list of governors on our governing body you will notice that we are quite a diverse group of people with different skills and experiences.
The 3 main roles of the governing body in raising standards and improving your school are:
To provide a strategic view (including aims, ethos, values, improvement planning, policies and budget management).
To act as a critical friend (supporting and advising the head teacher, providing practical help and skills, monitoring and evaluating the work of the school).
To ensure accountability (we must be prepared to explain our decisions and actions).
To fulfil our requirements we have governing body meetings, committee/working party meetings, publication of an annual profile and school visits. Some of the governors also take an interest in specific Key Stages or in specific subjects. We come into school to join in class activities, which enables us to meet both staff and children and to feed back to the governing body. So, as you can see, we all work together in partnership to help develop and improve your school.
We hope to meet YOU in the near future!
Chair of Whitehouse Primary School
