Governors

The Governing Body of Lady Bankes Schools

 

In April 2016, one federated governing body was formed as the governing body responsible for both Lady Bankes Infant & Nursery School and Lady Bankes Junior School.

 

Governors are responsible for ensuring the clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the schools; holding the Head Teachers to account for the performance of the schools and their pupils; and overseeing the financial performance of the schools. Simply put, we want to ensure that children achieve the best they can and that money is well spent in making this happen.

 

Governors and staff are united in the belief that a good relationship between school and home enhances a child’s confidence and assists development. We rely on the support and involvement of parents and carers and as a school we endeavour to forge relationships that do not end at the school gate.

 

At Lady Bankes Schools, governors draw on our various backgrounds and experiences to support and challenge the school. We are all here because we care about the schools and want them to succeed.

 

The Full Governing Body meets each half term but most of our work is done in the following committees, which also meet every half term.

 

  • Community & Wellbeing Committee (chaired by John Price)
  • Curriculum Committee (chaired by Nicky Perkins)
  • Data & Assessment Committee (chaired by Charlotte Moore)
  • Finance & Personnel Committee (chaired by Jo Coxwell)

 

Governors with named responsibilities (see below for a full list) report to the appropriate committee. In turn, the committees then report to the full governing body, which has overall responsibility for the governance of both schools.

 

For more details on the work and responsibilities of our different committee’s please click on the document below.

 

Governors are available to discuss matters with parents at school events but if you would like to contact me then please write to me via the school.
