School governors are ordinary people from the local community who wish to make a positive contribution to children’s education. They are the largest volunteer force in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards through their three key roles of setting the strategic direction of the School, ensuring accountability, and being the School’s ‘critical friend’.
Almost anyone can become a school governor. All new governors receive training and support from the School, the Local Authority and their fellow governors. If you are interested in assisting the School in this way, please ask the School Office for further details.
The governing body make strategic decisions on how the school is run and are answerable to parents, the wider community and most importantly the children who attend Bush Hill Park Primary School. They govern rather than manage giving direction and focus. The management of the school remains the responsibility of the Headteacher. They are responsible for:
- Appointing the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher and ensuring the implementation of a range of personnel procedures
- Managing the schools budget
- Determining aims, policies and priorities for Bush Hill Park primary School
- Monitoring and evaluating the work of the school
- Ensuring high levels of attendance and good standards of pupil behaviour
- Ensuring that all children in the school have access to a broad and balanced curriculum, suitable to age, aptitude and ability, which prepares them for adult life
- Ensuring the Health and Safety of pupils and staff
