Meet the Governors

It is the responsibility of the Local Governing Committee (LGC) to raise standards at the school, to work strategically as part of the leadership team and to act as a critical friend to the staff.  They are accountable to parents and the local community as well as to government via Ofsted inspections and report to the Tandridge Learning Trust.

The LGC is made up of people from all walks of life, and we are grateful for the skills and expertise they bring to the task of being a ‘critical friend’ to the school. Governors work with the school to formulate strategic plans and policies for the short, medium and long term future of the school. It is our task to monitor the implementation of these plans and policies to ensure that the whole school community is safe, healthy, happy and reaching their full potential. We are currently made up of:

  • Headteacher
  • Two Parent Governors
  • One Staff Governor
  • Five Community Governors

Each term, Governors visit the school to monitor the implementation of the School Improvement Plan in a particular year group. Governors will visit classrooms, speak to pupils & staff and look at examples of work, classroom and displays and check safety procedures. Governors may also have meetings with staff, eg Special Needs and Early Years to look at action plans and their impact.

Governors are also involved in monitoring the value for money delivered by the school using the Pupil Premium money to ensure that it is being used to deliver better outcomes for our more disadvantaged children. The same applies to our Sports Premium money received from the government. Governors observe initiatives in operation and speak to children and staff about their involvement, including how the impact of these initiatives are measured.

Governors are involved in looking at data for the progress and outcomes of children across the school and comparing it to national figures and for those from similar schools. Governors can then hold school leaders to account for the impact both teaching and whole school initiatives are having on the outcomes for our children.

The Local Governing Committee of our School is made up of 9 people and a Clerk as follows:
