BEATRIX POTTER SCHOOL GOVERNORS
Our children are our future. The governors work with the Head and the senior leadership team to provide the best possible opportunities for our children to achieve their potential, thrive and be happy in this excellent school. Using our experience we act as critical friends, advisors and supporters to the school. We are very proud to be associated with Beatrix Potter and its high standards of education. Working together we will continue this tradition and move the school forward to even greater achievements.
Chair of Governors
BEATRIX POTTER GOVERNING BODY MEMBERSHIP AND COMMITTEES
The governing body is made up of the headteacher, parents, members of staff and a range of people with the skills to support the development of BP.
We have termly full governing body meetings and operate a number of sub-committees which also meet every term or more frequently if needed.
We are fortunate to have a considerable range of expertise on the governing body . This brings ‘fresh eyes’ to issues and enables the school to be innovative as well as maintaining the high standards we all expect. Governors are an integral part of the BP community and are there to support school and parents. They cannot however on their own change school policy and procedures, that is the role of the head in conjunction with governors.
If you have anything you would like to raise with the governors, please email the chair of the Governing Body directly, via: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond to you.
You can also leave any communications for governors in the school office.
