Happiness at the heart of learning

School Governors

The Governing Board

 

On behalf of Whitehall Junior School’s Governing Board, I’d like to welcome you to our website.  I am privileged to hold the position of Chair of Governors here at Whitehall Junior School, and have been an active member of the Governing Board since my son attended the school 7 years ago. The role is a challenging but very fulfilling one, and I’m proud to be associated with a school which aims to provide the best education and learning environment for our local children.  The Governing Board consists of various members who represent the ‘stakeholders’ of the school. These include parents, members of staff, the community, and the Local Authority. The aim of the Governing Board is to both support, and to challenge the school and to fulfil three main roles:

  1.   

1. Provide strategic direction for the school.

2. Act as a critical friend to the school.

3. Ensure accountability and the optimum use of resources in order to properly meet the needs of all children and the staff that support them.

 

Currently governors meet several times each term, either as part of a full governing board meeting or as part of a smaller committee. They also visit the school to meet linked classes and to discuss various matters linked to the school’s improvement plan.  All new governors are welcomed and play a vital role in ensuring that the views of parents and the local community are heard.  If you have a keen interest in education or improving the outcomes for children, and you have some time to spare to join us, please contact the school directly and we can advise you. You may also like to refer to the the London Borough of Hillingdon website http://www.hillingdon.gov.uk/index.jsp?articleid=7691

 

My association with the school has proved to be both enjoyable and rewarding.  I look forward to continuing to work with my fellow governors to ensure that “Happiness at the Heart of Learning” is experienced by all the children who attend Whitehall Junior School.


Best wishes,


Angela Doherty
