Welcome Letter from our Chair of Governors

 

On behalf of the Governors of Curbar Primary School, I would like to welcome parents, carers, children and their families to our wonderful school. It is important that you as parent and carer feel welcome within the school community, as a good relationship between school and home is an important part of building a child’s confidence and self-esteem.

 

We feel confident that the children at our school have a happy, safe, and caring environment in which to learn, an enriching curriculum, and dedicated and inspiring staff and school leadership. The school aims to help the children to be confident, sensitive to others, interested in both their local surroundings and the wider world, and prepared for the challenges that face them in the future.

 

The governors at the school are all volunteers from the local community and come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some of the governors have children at the school or have done until recently, and some even attended the school themselves. Our formal role involves supporting and challenging the head teacher in the processes of setting the school’s strategic aims and ethos, evaluating and improving performance, planning for the future, and ensuring that resources are efficiently and effectively deployed. We all support the school so that all the children in the community have access to a nurturing and well-rounded education and the opportunities that they deserve; we are here because we care for the school and want it to succeed.

 

Many of the governors are regularly in the school and playground at the start and end of the school day, please feel free to come up for a chat any time, or contact us through the school office.

Yours

John Dix

Chair of Governors, Curbar Primary School

 

Governance Update – 11 April 2016

As well as holding full governing body meetings, there were historically three sub committees that supported the leadership and management of the school. These were ‘school improvement’, ‘teaching and learning’ and ‘resource management’. Just before the Easter break, a restructure was agreed between school leadership and governors. There will continue to be full governing body meetings and a resource management committee – but a new standards and curriculum committee has been created. These will be supported by ‘working parties’ to monitor and evaluate the school improvement plan.

Governor Information January 2017

 

Should you at any time wish to speak to our school governors, they are often available on the playground at the start or end of the school day.  Alternatively please contact the headteacher who will arrange for one of them to contact you.  The governing body and headteacher work together as a partnership to achieve the aims and objectives of the school. The governing body has clearly set out legal obligations and functions.

 

Some of the governors themselves have children at Curbar Primary School and all of them are keen and happy to answer any questions you may have.
