Welcome from the Chair of Governors, Paul Burnett

Welcome to the Governors’ page of our Havelock Schools website.

We are a Federated Governing Body which means that we have responsibility for both Havelock Infant and Havelock Junior Schools. We first federated in September 2015.  The members of our Governing Body are listed in this section of the website.

Our primary purpose is to ensure the quality of education provision and to act as the accountable body for two schools. We are also part of the Montsaye Community Learning Partnership and work closely with the Trust Board in carrying out our work.

We have a number of key roles in the running of the school. These are to:

  • set the strategic direction, vision and ethos of the school;
  • monitor and challenge the progress of the school in achieving its priorities;
  • recruit and performance manage the headteacher;
  • exercise employer responsibility;
  • ensure that the schools meet their statutory responsibilities;
  • ensure financial probity;
  • ensure the premises are well managed;
  • report to the school’s stakeholders.

 We are proud to have been recognised as an effective governing body by Ofsted but we also strive to continually improve.  Each year we agree a Governors Improvement Plan that sets out key priorities development.  In 2017/18 these are:

Priority 1:

To raise the profile and visibility of the governing body ensuring that stakeholders are aware of their roles and responsibilities. Build stronger relationships with all key stakeholders to ensure that they are engaged in the work of the school.

Priority 2:

To ensure Governors have the appropriate knowledge, experience, skills and competence to carry out their role.

Priority 3:

To further develop Governors capacity to support and challenge the school and hold school leadership to account specifically in relation to:

  • Quality and standards of attainment/achievement
  • Safeguarding and inclusion – particularly pupil premium and SEN
  • Finance and premises management
