Meet Our Governors

All governors are volunteers.

What we do

As a Governing Body, we are dedicated to ensuring the pupils at Kingsmoor Lower School receive the best education possible. We are committed to continually improving the teaching and learning experience of our children, ensuring that all  pupils receive a broad, balanced, creative curriculum.

We strive to create an environment where pupils can achieve their full
potential.


The Governing Body takes a strategic role in the running of the schools. This involves:

• Working with the Head Teacher to ensure high quality teaching and standards across     the school

• Acting as a critical friend by asking questions, challenging expectations and pushing     for improvements

• Agreeing the school's strategy for development

• Monitoring and reviewing progress towards the schools aims and objectives

• Agreeing policies

• Ensuring health and safety standards are adhered to, so that we can create a safe and supportive
environment for our pupils to learn in

• managing the school’s budget

• promoting the interests of the school and the pupils in the wider community

 

We welcome your questions and feedback at any time. Please feel free to contact us through the school office
