Chair of Governor’s Welcome
Welcome to Coomb Briggs.
The Governors are very proud of our school, set in its beautiful location. We come from a wide range of backgrounds with varied interests. We hold regular meetings to help and support the headteacher and staff.
I have been a governor at the school for over 25 years and ‘Chair of Governors’ for over ten years.
Our pupils are hardworking and polite.
The staff are all very caring and supportive, giving the children 100% commitment.
Enjoy your time with us.
Our governing body has three key roles:
- We hold the Headteacher and her senior staff to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, helping to ensure that all of our pupils are given the opportunity to thrive, and
- We oversee the financial performance of the school to ensure that money is well spent.
Details of our current governors are set out below. Our governors have a wide range of background, skills and experience which they bring to the governing body and work closely with the Headteacher and senior leaders, who are responsible for the running of the Academy. The Headteacher is accountable to governors for how she does this and frequently reports and consults with governors about this.
Governors meet several times a year to look at all aspects of the life and work of the school. All of our governors visit the school regularly to ensure that things are working as they should and your child will recognise our governors from school celebrations. In addition, many of the governors are linked with specific aspects of school life and make regular reports to the rest of the governors.
If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a governor, please contact our Governance Officer, Melanie Gibbons, on 07729 105871 or by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org
