The Governors are responsible for strategic decisions about how the school is run, in partnership with the Headteacher, staff and the Local Education Authority (Herts County Council). Governors are representatives of the community ranging from parents to local council representatives. The Governing Body meetings take place at least six times per year.
On behalf of all Governors, I wish you a warm welcome to Westfield Community Primary School.
As school governors, we have an important role in monitoring the safety, welfare and education of all of our children. We work collectively and strategically as a corporate body to drive forward the school’s vision.
Governors do not manage the school; this is the role of the Headteacher and the Senior Leadership team. Instead, we oversee the development of the school by working closely with them to monitor and provide supportive challenge to ensure the children at Westfield receive the best start in their education.
These are some examples of some of our areas of responsibility:
- · Monitoring pupil achievement and progress and pupil safety.
- · Ensuring statutory requirements are met and achieved.
- · Financial oversight.
- · Setting strategic priorities for the school’s continued development and improvement.
- · Safeguarding of children and staff.
The members of the Governing Body are proud and privileged to be able to contribute to the leadership of Westfield CP School for the benefit of all children, parents and staff. We hope you will take time to get to know your Governing Body and please feel free to get in touch at any time.
