Lakenham Primary and Nursery School

Governors

Governors have had a very busy Summer Term so far.   As part of our monitoring role, we have made several visits in order to review, challenge and evaluate different areas of the schools provision.  Some of our visits were made by;

 Our Safeguarding governor, Isobel McCloy, who has been making sure the school meets all statutory and legal requirements for keeping children safe.

 Our Pupil Premium governor, Chris Moore, who has been making sure the schools additional funding is being well spent.

 Our Inclusion governor, Jane Merrett, who has been helping to ensure the school is meeting the needs of pupils with SEN

 Our Chair of Governors, Glen Scott, who has met with staff in order to monitor workload and wellbeing.

 

 Our Data Analysis governor, Mark Burton, who has met with the Teaching and Learning leads in order to understand progress and attainment being made by the children throughout the school.

 If you have any questions for the Governors, then they can be contacted via the school office.

 

Lakenham Primary School has an experienced and committed Governing Body. They monitor the performance of the school, providing support to ensure that every child receives a quality education. They work in partnership with the Headteacher, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school.

All Lakenham Primary School Governors are volunteers and include:

  • Parents elected by other parents at the school
  • A teacher elected by their colleagues
  • A staff member elected by their colleagues
  • Members of the local community (co-op governors)
  • Representatives appointed by the co-operative trust.

The full Governing Body meets at least once every half term. Every Governor is also a member of one of our committees; Curriculum, Resources and Environment. These committees meet regularly to develop school policies, oversee budgets, evaluate progress and agree targets. Governors visit the school regularly and also attend training and school events.
