THE ROLE OF THE GOVERNORS
Who are the governors and what do we do?
As governors we are ultimately responsible for the academic standards, achievement and progress, as well as the well-being of the children of Brunswick Park Primary & Nursery School.
We are here to support Andy Griffiths as a ‘critical friend’. In doing so we play our part in raising the school’s standards. We take on a great deal of strategic work for the school to ensure its smooth running. We oversee the organisation, curriculum and budget of the school whilst the day-to–day running is the responsibility of Andy Griffiths and his staff. We are dedicated volunteers who meet regularly for both full Governing Board meetings and for Committee meetings where the work is shared out. We are passionate about the school’s well being and aim to bring a range of skills, expertise, knowledge and interests to the school. Our Governing Body consists of Community Representatives, Local Authority Representatives, Staff and Parent Governors. There are also two Associate Governors, appointed for a particular area of expertise.
As a Governing Body, we are very proud of our school and it is very much our aim is to as be transparent and approachable as possible. This means that full Governing Body and Committee meeting minutes are available for viewing via the school office. Many of us are parents or staff at the school and all of us come into the school as often as we can. If you spot us in the playground you are welcome to speak to us about any aspect of the school and if we can’t help you we will be happy to point you in the right direction.
