My name is Ken Howard and I am presently the Chair of Governors for Ghyllgrove Community Infant School. My fellow Governors are:
The role of the Governing Body is to help the Head Teacher, to ensure that all our children are happy,safe and have the opportunity to be the best they can.
We are responsible for all aspects of the School from agreeing the curriculum to how the money is spent right down to ensuring there is enough paper and pencils.
One of our roles is to act as a critical friend to the school to ensure that standards and achievements of the children and that of the teaching continues to be constantly improving.
At this time we have a number of vacancies on the Governing Body. To join us you need no particular skills just an interest in seeing our children are given the best possible start to their education. The vacancies are open to any parent, carer, grandparent or anybody from our local community. We supply a full range of induction training which is fully funded by us.
If you feel you would like to join us or ask any more questions I can be contacted via the school office or they will tell you when I am next in School.
Hope to hear from you soon.
