Welcome to our Governors’ section.
Here at Berkeley Primary School, we are very proud to work with and be part of a team that is striving to Outstanding. As members of the Governing Body we see the immense effort and dedication that goes into moving our school forward and improving standards. It is our role to support and challenge the school to do even better.
Our governors are an important link between the school and our local community. They are made up of parents of children at the school, staff at the school and community representatives.
The Governing Body, alongside the Headteacher and staff, are responsible for the school. We hold the school to account for the standards and progress it achieves - we aim to improve the school and pupil performance. We help make important decisions about the school, improve the school by putting in place a School Improvement Plan, we interview and select staff, oversee the performance management of the staff and decide how the school budget is spent to provide value for money and on the right things to improve the school. We appoint the Headteacher and delegate to her the responsibility of the day to day running of the school. Any important decisions are made by the Governing Body as a whole. The Governors operate at a strategic level.
We have a full Governors meeting once a term. We also meet in smaller committees (Personnel and Finance, Safeguarding and Premises and School Improvement) each term.
