Whitchurch Combined School

Growing Today, Ready for Tomorrow

A welcome from the Chair of Governors

As the Chair of Governors and as a parent, I am delighted to welcome you to the Governors’ section of the Whitchurch Combined School website.

 

We have an extremely active Governing Body at Whitchurch who work very closely with the Headteacher, and all the staff at the school.  In broad terms, as a Governing Body we:

- Take a strategic role in the running of Whitchurch Combined School.

- Act as a critical friend to the School.

- Ensure accountability to the school community.

 

We work in partnership with Headteacher and the school staff, taking an active interest in the direction of travel and the improvement plans for the school, as well as financial monitoring.  We do not get involved in the day-to-day operation of the school, as this is the responsibility of the teaching and management staff.

 

There are 14 governors at Whitchurch Combined School who are appointed through various routes.  There are parent governors, who are elected by the parents themselves, and co-opted governors who are people from our community that can bring skills to the Governing Body to contribute to the School.  Co-opted governors are appointed by the Governing Body itself.  You can find out more about each governor using the 'Meet the Governors' link on the previous page.

 

We are always keen to hear from anyone who is interested in becoming a governor and of course, if you have and questions or feedback please contact the school office.

 

Best regards,

Charlotte Beadle, Chair of Governors at Whitchurch Combined School
