Governors at Heather Primary School

Our Gov­ern­ing Body takes a pride in the car­ing ethos of the school, which encour­ages all the chil­dren to achieve their full poten­tial. A unity of pur­pose gives the school a firm base upon which to build, and reg­u­lar train­ing for all staff and gov­er­nors’ work­ing within the school sup­ports this.

Gov­er­nors are aware of the diverse back­grounds of the chil­dren within the school and take care to sup­port the Headteacher in iden­ti­fy­ing needs spe­cific to the catch­ment. (e.g. Base­line assess­ment & use of data to iden­tify more able / SEN chil­dren). They are com­mit­ted to a pol­icy of bud­getary allo­ca­tion that reflects the spe­cific needs of the school.

Par­ents’ involve­ment in their children’s edu­ca­tion, both through work­ing with the chil­dren at home and in sup­port­ing the day to day life of the school, is actively encour­aged and Gov­er­nors endorse this belief by work­ing in the class­rooms along­side the teach­ers on a reg­u­lar basis, when this is pos­si­ble, and are com­mit­ted to devel­op­ing their knowl­edge of the school and curriculum. 

There is a firm com­mit­ment to com­mu­nity involve­ment, both in sup­port of the school cur­ricu­lum and in rela­tion to fund-raising where the school reg­u­larly orga­nises col­lec­tions for indi­vid­u­als or groups, as well as tak­ing advan­tage of pro­mo­tional fund-raising events that sup­port the school’s resource needs.
