The Governing Body at Eccleston Primary School is an incredibly effective and hard working group that play a vital role in school development. Governors are involved in decisions about all aspects of managing the school, such as: curriculum, premises, budgets, staffing and setting standards.
Governors also help to make decisions about the school’s long-term goals. They support the Head Teacher, but also ask questions to ensure that the Head Teacher is taking the school in the right direction.
The full Governing Body meets three times a year. A committee for teaching and learning looks at aspects such as: attainment, progress, targets, subject leadership and school improvement. A committee for staffing and finance looks at aspects such as: budget monitoring, buildings, health and safety and staff. Smaller groups meet more regularly to discuss specific issues.
Each Governor contributes a broad range of skills and expertise to the school, from across business and commerce and education sectors, such as; finance, health and safety, management and educational awareness. All governors are linked with a subject/focus area and are in contact with the school subject leader, creating a comprehensive understanding of current subject themes and initiatives. Additionally, each governor is associated directly with a class and follows that class on their journey through school. Governors are welcomed into classes and are actively involved in school life.
As Chair of Governors and a resident of Eccleston, I am honoured and privileged to represent Eccleston Primary School and to be part of a great team of teachers and governors. We value the community in which we serve and offer a warm welcome to both current and prospective parents and children.
