Weston Shore Infant SchoolCaring, Believing, Achieving

Meet the Governors

Picture 1

My name is John Martin and I have the privilege of being Chair of Governors at Weston Shore School. On behalf of the governors I would like to welcome you to the "Governors' Section" of the web site.

The governing body of Weston Shore Infant School is made up of a dedicated group of people; consisting of representatives from parents, the school and local community. We have a wide range of expertise and experience and are determined that the pupils attending the school get the best possible start on their education journey.

 

What do we do?

 

The governors are basically responsible for everything that goes on in the school. This includes:

Finance, Maintenance of the building and site, Health and Safety including safeguarding, Quality Control of teaching and the 

childrens' learning and progress, Staff Issues and ensuring that the school is managed well and all statutory obligations are met.

 

We are volunteers; therefore, of course, we delegate the day-to-day operation of the school to the Head Teacher. However, it is still the final responsibility of the governors to ensure that everything runs efficiently.

 

Carrying out our Duties.

 

To enable us to fulfill our duties, the full governing board meets every half term. We also have several working groups, consisting of a small number of governors, that can look at specific roles and topics; reporting back to the full board. In addition we regularly attend training sessions ensuring that we keep up to date with latest changes and directives from the Government.

We enjoy visiting the school; attending classes, assemblies, celebrations and to see the daily operation of the school.

Please find below details of the Governing Body, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor. Also included are any pecuniary interest that Governors might have and a record of attendance at governor meetings.
