Pupils reading at Christleton Primary School

The main role of the governing body is to help raise the standards and performance of Christleton Primary School by supporting the work of the head teacher and the staff. The Governors will support and, at the same time, challenge the head teacher by gathering views, asking questions and deciding what is best for our school. Governors make important decisions on policies and strategies and have to stand by their decisions and are answerable to parents and the wider community.

As Governors we have to work as a team and as a priority are responsible for making sure the school provides a good quality education and raises educational standards. This has the best chance of happening when there are high expectations of what pupils can achieve.

We also promote effective ways of teaching and learning when setting the school aims and policies. We do this together with the Head teacher, who is responsible for the day today management of the school.

As Governors we are at the heart of how a school operates. It is important that we get things right. How we do our jobs affects the interests of pupils, staff morale and how the school is seen by parents and others in the community.
