Bridgetown Primary School

Ready, Respectful, Safe

The Governing Body

Many thanks for your interest in the governing body at Bridgetown Primary School. 

Having been appointed to the role of Chair of Governors in July 2022, I am really looking forward to working with Gen and Lindsey, the two vice-chairs, and with all the other members of the governing body and wider school. We are all keen to continue to ensure that Bridgetown Primary School provides the very best for all of its pupils in a safe, supportive and engaging setting. As volunteers, we ensure that our respective roles reflect our skills and experience. We are also provided with training opportunities to ensure we are up to date with current legislation and practices, allowing us to fully realise our responsibilities in the most effective manner. 

As a governing body, our statutory role is to support Mrs Tailby, the headteacher, and the wider senior leadership, in that we are responsible for: 

  • Developing the strategic direction of the school and challenging outcomes to assist in the improvement of the school 

  • Monitoring performance and standards to ensure progress and attainment are continually improving to the highest level for all pupils 

  • Providing sound financial management which can demonstrate accountability and value for money so all pupils benefit from the best possible resources and environment in which to learn 

We are eagerly anticipating the launch of a new vision and strategy for the school this academic year – more details of this will be made available in the Autumn Term. We will also be publishing further details of how we continue to support the school and all of the fantastic work that it does on a regular basis. There will be the opportunity to learn more about the members of the governing body via this section of the website in due course too, so please check back here for updates! 

Finally, we fully support parents taking an active role in the life of the school and as such welcome your feedback.  Please feel free to contact me to find out more about Bridgetown Primary School’s governing body.  

 

Kind regards
