About Oakridge School Governors

GOVERNORS' ETHOS

 

"Pupils at Oakridge School are nurtured in a cohesive community through the provision of a safe, supporting and caring environment.  We strive to be the best we can by challenging, inspiring and encouraging success."

 

 

The Governing Body exists to support and oversee the work of the school and the Governors work to make our school a better place. 

 

Whilst the Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school, the governors are involved with the management of the budget, the employment of teachers, the curriculum content and other issues. The governors also monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards the achievement of its aims and objectives by being a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend).

 

A Governing Body is composed of representatives from the Local Education Authority, local community, parents, staff and the Headteacher.  All governor appointments are for a four year term.

The Governing Body holds 3 full meetings each year. The minutes of these meetings are available to be viewed at school. We also have several committees in place that meet regularly and monitor different aspects of the school.

 

Governors may be contacted through the school office.

 

 

If you would like more information or are interested in becoming a Community governor and want to bring your expertise to the governing body please contact the school office on 01494 520341. All that is needed is to be over 18 years of age, a willingness to give time to the role and a capacity to work with other people. You will find it a very rewarding way to put something back into the community.
