Welcome to the Local Governors’ page for Knowle Primary School. We would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about ourselves, our roles and our aims.
Our Local Governing Body comprises of eleven governors, all of whom bring different skills to governance.
Local governors are volunteers who give their time and commitment to meet to discuss standards and support and challenge the school leadership. The Local Governing Body also contributes to OFSTED inspections.
To be an effective board in challenging and supporting the school so that weaknesses are tackled decisively and our statutory responsibilities are met.
We will endeavour to do this by:
English, Mathematics, SEN (Special Educational Needs), Looked After
Children, Child Protection, Healthy & Safety and Early Years.
As you can see there is a great deal expected of all local governing bodies, which is why it is important that responsibilities are shared.
For more information about becoming a school governor, please contact the Chair of the Board via the school office to see if there are any vacancies.
