Please read Governors' pen portraits to learn about the broad skillset of our wonderful governing board:
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 at Stanhope.
Alongside staff, parent and children we work together in a happy, creative and high attaining environment; with our core values of confidence, honesty, respect, kindness and empathy underpinning everything we do.
The Governing Body is involved with our school at every level. This includes finance, safeguarding, premises management and staff appointments. As Governors we consider our most important role to be the safety, welfare and education of our pupils.
The children in our school achieve high standards across the curriculum. We are justifiably very proud of them and would like to thank the parents who encourage and support their children so admirably. In a good school such as ours, parents take a great interest in their child's learning and development. During the early years of primary education, academic, personal, social and creative skills are nurtured and developed.
Governors are appointed to ensure that objectives are met, and that future planning is both visionary and realistic. We provide strategic direction for the improvement of the school; monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the school; and hold the school to account for the standards achieved and the quality of education. We are here as a 'critical friend' to support and encourage our Head Teacher, Ms Widdison, Senior Leadership Team and all school personnel to ensure that every one of our children has access to an enriched education and to all the opportunities that they deserve.
