Welcome from the Chair of Governors at Barnburgh Primary School
My name is Janine Reid and I am the Chair of Governors. I am delighted to have this opportunity to give you an overview of governance at Barnburgh Primary School.
I have been on the board of governors from 2004 and I have been Chair since 2014. My current term of office as Chair is due to end in September when the AGM takes place.
Governance has altered dramatically over the last few years. Our main objective is the strategic direction of the school and to ensure that operational initiatives reflect the aims, ethos and values of the school. In essence this means we work closely and in partnership with the senior leaders of the school, we hold them accountable in terms of attainment, achievement, financial aspects, behaviour, attendance, teacher performance including the headteacher and many other aspects.
As a governing body we ourselves are held accountable to the Local Authority and stakeholders (parents, pupils, community)
