Lewknor School Governing Body 

 

 

An Introduction from David Pickard – Chair of Governors

 

On behalf of the Governing Body, I am pleased to welcome you to Lewknor C of E Primary School.

Our role, as Governors, is to set the overall vision and ethos of the school and ensure the effective and efficient use of the school’s resources. In particular we hold the headteacher to account and offer guidance and an objective view on the management of the school.

The Governors believe that every year of primary school is crucial and that every child within each class should be taught in a way which allows them to make at least good progress.  We expect every child to be set appropriate and aspirational targets for their progress. We will ensure that these are rigorously monitored by the class teacher, the curriculum co-ordinator and the headteacher. To this end we ask that the results are passed on, in an anonymised format, to the governing body for further scrutiny. At the same time we want to ensure that the school provides an enjoyable, supportive and safe learning environment. We would like every child to leave Lewknor School fully equipped to flourish in secondary school and later life.

This is a good school as evidenced by the recent Ofsted inspection and our aim is to build on this and drive forward further improvement.  We will provide information and communicate as appropriate with all stakeholders of the school. We are determined that the school continues to be a strong stable and inclusive community and reflects our core values of Integrity, Wisdom and Friendship.

If you wish to discuss any matters relating to the governance of the school, then do not hesitate to contact me via the school office but if you have any questions regarding the day to day operational management of the school, then please contact the headteacher, Mrs Cole.
