Note from the Chair of Governors

I am delighted to welcome you to the Governing Body's section of our school's website, we hope that it gives you a flavour of our vibrant and happy school and a taste of the facilities, activities and ambiance that we offer.  As Chair of Governors, I am extremely proud of our school and the strong body of Governors who work closely with the head and her Senior Management Team to ensure that pupils enjoy a positive and high quality educational experience during their time at Farfield Primary and Nursery School.

All the members of the Governing Body are dedicated to improving and building upon the excellent learning and teaching within the school.  We do this by constantly supporting and challenging the Management and staff.  

Governors bring many skills and experiences to their role in supporting, promoting and protecting the interests of the school, its pupils and its staff and are an important link between the school and its local community.

 

Our Governing board, along with all other Governing boards, no matter what type of schools or how many schools they govern, have three core functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

 

The Governing Body consists of members of the teaching staff, the Head teacher, elected parent members, Local Education Authority Representatives and other members of our local community.

We aim to provide support the school by providing a range of perspectives alongside those already provided by the professionals employed at Farfield Primary and Nursery School. Curriculum policy is based upon a firm belief in equality of opportunity and we aim to ensure that all the children have equal access to a broad and balanced curriculum as set out in this school handbook and in accordance with legal requirements.

We aim to work with the school and the local community to provide a happy and stimulating environment, where children value themselves and others and where learning and growth can flourish.
