Chair of Governors
We understand that the decision about where to entrust the care of your child and their education is extremely important, and we thank you for considering Trinity All Saints CofE Primary School. We pride ourselves on the nurture and care we provide for our pupils, and that our pupils are happy and enjoy learning, and are part of a vibrant and caring school community.
The prospectus and website are designed to help you to find out lots of information about the school as well as how you can play a key role in ensuring your children get the best out of their time at our school.
Our school works very hard with high expectations of all our staff and school governors. Similarly, we expect all our children and their parents to work hard to ensure that by working together we can sustain and exceed the excellent opportunities afforded to our children in getting an excellent start in their academic and future life.
Governors at Trinity All Saints’ CofE Primary School believe the children should have an excellent environment in which to learn and excel in their academic subjects but also to embed values of trust, respect, tolerance, perseverance and forgiveness. Trinity All Saints is a Church of England school, and we believe that this underpins and supports how we care and nurture all the children in our care.
The Governors have regular meetings with the Head Teacher and senior leaders, and all Governors are able to maintain close relationships with the school through regular visits. Governors are also named with regards to governance issues such as Health & Safety, Special Education Needs, Literacy and Mathematics and so on. This allows us to have a first-hand involvement in the work of the school as an employer and as a provider of quality education to our children regardless of ability.
Governors have an important role to play in the Governance and Management of how schools are run. The Governing Body has a range of duties including:helping to set the overall strategic direction of Trinity All Saints’ CofE Primary School and in formulating its aims;
- ensuring the school finances are managed effectively and the school provides good value for money;
- making sure there is a broad and balanced curriculum which meets the needs of all children;
- appointing staff; reviewing staff performance and pay and setting and reviewing objectives for school improvement and development.
Together, the Governors act as a critical friend to the school ensuring that the school is suitably challenged as well as supported so that ALL the children can achieve the best of their ability.
As Governors, we welcome feedback from parents and from children. We always look forward to hearing from the School Council and encourage parents to speak to any of the parent governors upon dropping children off in the morning or when collecting them from school at the end of the day. Alternatively, please ask to speak to one of us through contacting the school. As Chair of Governors, I am always happy to talk and listen to parents and our pupils!
