Edward the Elder

Primary School



Welcome from our chair

The Governing Body is actively involved in developing the Vision and Values of Edward the Elder Primary School. We have collective responsibility for three key roles:

• To provide a strategic view
• To act as a critical friend
• To ensure accountability

Our members have a broad range of knowledge and experience which helps us to debate strategies for improvement so that Edward the Elder pupils are able to learn most effectively and achieve the highest standards. The volunteer members have the independence to ask challenging questions, whilst contributing skills to lend support and advice where we can. We monitor results and other aspects of school life, such as attendance, behaviour and safeguarding. We also review School's policies, which are available to you on this website. We receive training to help us understand the complex workings of a school. We meet three times a year as full governing body and have regular sub-committee meetings in between.

We have an insight into just how complex a challenge it is for the staff to provide on a daily basis a welcoming and safe environment where each pupil is encouraged to learn and develop through a stimulating experience. The staff's dedication is impressive. But the staff are never complacent and nor is the Governing Body. The views of parents and carers are important. If you have any questions, comments, feedback or general observations concerning our Governing Body and would like to talk to me, then please contact me through the School Office.
