The governors meet regularly to make decisions regarding your child's education.
What we do?
We work with the staff in keeping Nelson Mandela School outstanding.
We do this by working with the leaderdship team (Head, Deputy Head and Assistant Heads) by:
1. Monitoring the performance and progress of our children
2. Working with the staff to help them teach and care for our children
3. Deciding on how the resources of the school are best used
4. Support our children to be successful and improve their learning
5. Challenge our school so it continually improves and develops
6. Being involved in the day to day life of the school, this can be as simple as attending assemblies or even going on trips
How do we do this?
We meet together at least once a half term as a whole team, and sometimes in small groups (called Committees) about Finance, Staffing and the Curriculum.
Who we are?
The Governor's team is mixture of parents, staff, co-opted and local authority members. We are a member for four years. We each have an area that we take particular interest in (eg. Numeracy, Literacy, SEN).
We are always keen to hear your views and I hope that this page will help you to understand what we do, who we are and why we are serving as Governors.
Safeguarding - the governing body is fully committed to protect and safeguard the children in our care.
All governors have enhanced DBS clearances. This means we are cleared by the police to work with children.
