Bincombe Valley Primary School Governors
Welcome to the Governors' page.
Our governors are a group of volunteers drawn from parents, the community and the school who give our time and experience freely to support the continuing success of our school. We act as a corporate body through a committee structure and each governor receives training appropriate to the roles that they undertake.
Our main task is to promote on-going improvements in standards throughout the school. We aim to achieve this by developing an in-depth understanding of the school and using this knowledge to challenge and support the Headteacher and the team. We also ensure that the school’s ethos, values and strategic direction are maintained and we oversee finances so that the school’s money is spent to the best advantage of our children.
The Full Governing Body meets twice each term and is supported by three sub-committees:
- People and Finance Committee.
- Curriculum Committee.
- Infrastructure Committee.
Annual priorities are laid down in the School Development Plan.
Individual Governors support our aim through:
- Active involvement with the school and the wider community in a variety of ways that reflect their interests and skills;
- The sharing of their knowledge and views with the other governors;
- Membership of committees and
- On-going training and development.
Members of the Governing Body may be contacted through the school office.
Minutes of the Full Governing Body meetings may also be viewed on request through the school office.
The list below gives a brief summary of our governors. In addition we are supported by our clerk, Rebecca Savage..
