Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section

 

 

 

Welcome to Southcott Lower School.

 

Our role as governors is to support the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to ensure that the children receive the best possible education and care.  We do this by working together strategically, by understanding the aspirations and plans which will move the school forward, and also by identifying any challenges or barriers to achieving this.

 

The Governors all meet together as a governing board to monitor the school budget, and to ensure that children are safe and able to enjoy a rich and varied curriculum.  We look at the priority areas for development of our provision and are proactive in supporting the school leaders to achieve these aims.  In addition, each governor is allocated an individual monitoring responsibility, for example Finance or Special Educational Needs.  This enables key areas to be examined in greater depth, and governor expertise to be developed.

 

The Chair of Governors is Jared Levens who can be contacted via the school office or at

chairofgovernors@southcottlower.cbeds.co.uk

 

The Clerk to the Governors is Penny Parkin, she can be contacted via the school office.
