The Governing Body of Kelsall Community Primary School has the ultimate responsibility for education of the children in our school. The Governing Body, whose membership includes the Headteacher, provides strategic leadership to the school and takes key decisions in areas such as finance, staffing structure and appointments and premises as well as monitoring educational performance. It works in a non-executive manner, operational leadership of the school is provided by the Headteacher.
Our members are drawn from parents, staff, the community and local authority representatives so that we bring a wide range of experiences and views to our debates. Although we are all volunteers we take our duties very seriously and consequently have a genuine impact upon the school and the education provided to Kelsall’s children. There are typically three governing body meetings per year (which are open to members of the public to observe) and the minutes are available for inspection either at the school or are published on the website. There are also several sub-committee meetings and members regularly attend training events.
The governing body welcomes enquiries from all sections of the community about membership. We always embrace people who are committed to the ethos of the school and who are willing to work with us to improve the quality of the leadership that we provide. Enthusiasm, commitment and a willingness to learn and contribute are the most important qualities. We can be contacted through the school.
Positive feedback is always welcome (so we can repeat successful things more often) but we also want to learn about things we can improve. We can readily be contacted through the school. If the matter is sensitive then a sealed envelope can be forwarded to the chair or he can be contacted on 01829 751214 or firstname.lastname@example.org
