Welcome to our Governors’ section
We value governors’ active involvement in the life and work of Chalk Ridge Primary School and would encourage you to think about becoming a member of the governing body when an appropriate opportunity arises. Parent Governor vacancies are notified by 'pupil post' and mentioned in the school newsletter. Information on the role of School Governors and how to apply to become a Local Education Authority Governor can be found on http://www3.hants.gov.uk/education/governors/governors-govrecruit.htm
Being a governor can be a rewarding experience, we are a group of hard working people who give freely of their time and energy, committing their talents to the service of Chalk Ridge Primary School.
Governors come from different backgrounds, reflecting the many interest groups involved in our school, but they have one important thing in common: they are dedicated to ensuring that the children at Chalk Ridge Primary School have the best education possible and have fun learning.
This is the primary focus of all governing body business. The Governing Body Members have a huge amount of knowledge, experience and competence: to draw on and we recognise that school governance is a team effort and decisions are made corporately.
High quality training and development is available for all Governors and all Governors are recommended to attend a Governors Induction course.
The Governing Body has a strong focus on three core strategic functions:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils,and the performance management of staff; and
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
Effective governance is about team-work with the headteacher, staff, governors, children, parents / carers and the community.
