Thomas Jolyffe Primary School

Governors

Welcome Statement from Sue Molloy, Chair of Governors

 

 

Dear Parents and Friends

 

As Chair of Governors, I am very proud of our school and the strong body of Governors that I lead. Many of the Governors are parents or past parents of Thomas Jolyffe pupils who live close to the school. We have been joined by other governors who bring different areas of experience to enhance the skills of the Governing Body.  We are all committed to our role in providing support and guidance to the school. The overall purpose of the Governing Body is to help our school provide the best possible education for all of the pupils in order to develop every child’s full potential.

 

 

About Our Governors

 

The Governors work closely with the Head teacher and Senior Management Team to ensure that pupils enjoy a continually improving positive and high quality educational experience during their time at Thomas Jolyffe.

 

Governors bring many skills and experiences to their role in supporting, promoting and protecting the interests of the school, its pupils and its staff and are an important link between the school and its local community. Decisions taken by the Governors are based upon the advice of committees who deal with specific issues and then report back to the full Board with their recommendations.

 

Governors have a number of responsibilities including:

  • Setting the strategic direction of the school and agreeing policies and objectives
  • Monitoring the curriculum
  • Reviewing and approving the school’s budget
  • Monitoring pupil progress
  • Appointing the Head teacher

 

We meet formally once every half term and minutes of all meetings are available from the school office or below in PDF form.

 

We are involved in all aspects of school life and regularly visit the school to observe the school and children at work.

 

The Governing body comprises 13 Governors, including the Head teacher. An individual’s term of office comprises 4 years, after which time they must seek re-appointment. Current governors are listed together with the expiry of their term of office:

 

All Governors may be contacted via the school office.

 

A meeting of the full governing body was held on 10th July 2019. Minutes will be uploaded as soon as they become available.

 

The next meeting will be held on 10th September 2019
