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

Have you ever thought about becoming a school governor?

This what Fatema Datoo, a past parent governor, had to say about the role:

 

I have been a parent governor at Whitehall Junior School for over two years now and am enjoying the role tremendously.  I have learnt how the school works 'behind the scenes!' and the incredible amount of time and effort all the staff employ to make Whitehall a joyous learning environment for all our children.  As governors, we are involved in setting the school budget, making decisions on how money should be spent in certain areas, discussing changes in curriculum, approving new systems staff wish to set in place and analysing all the school data to make sure the children are achieving and performing at their best in all areas. As a new governor, I attended training courses which taught me how to be a school governor and if there is anything I am unsure of/need clarification on, the current cohort of governors are extremely friendly and knowledgeable and will answer all my questions. I would highly recommend becoming a parent governor to anyone wishing to help out the school and give back to the community as together we can make the school an even better learning environment, not only for our children but also for the generations of children to come.
