Welcome to the Governors page of the school's website.
School Governors are one of the country’s largest group of volunteers with over 300,000 people contributing to the development and improvement of schools.
The Board of Governors represent a cross section of stakeholders and includes members of staff, parents, the local authority and local community.
Governors have 3 core functions:
· Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
· Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and the performance management of staff
· Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure money is well spent
At Stoke Damerel Primary Academy the Board of Governors meets approximately 6 times each year helping to set the school's overall aims and ensuring that key areas such as the curriculum, standards of attainment and progress, finance, personnel and the building and site are regularly monitored to ensure value for money and the best possible outcomes for the whole school community.
As well as regular meetings, Governors visit the school and communicate with pupils, staff and parents to help them in their role of monitoring and evaluating what is happening in school and then supporting the school in developing future goals.
