Western CofE Primary

Governors

Welcome to the Governors' section of the school website. 

Our governing body numbers 14 members, including parent governors, staff governors and co-opted governors and meets body once every half term. There are two sub-committees - Curriculum and Community and Resources & Personnel - each of which also meet once every half term. Our role is to set the aims and objectives, policies and targets for the school; to monitor and evaluate progress and to support and challenge the headteacher.  

We are in the process of developing the strategy for the next 3 years, with the overall aim of making the school outstanding in all areas.  The Governors believe that the main challenges facing the school are: 
  • the need to retain the holistic approach to education whilst improving achievement for all children, symbolised by the Learning Tree;
  • the need to develop the infrastructure of the school to provide a creative, sustainable environment for learning, including maximising the use of the wonderful school grounds;
  • providing a distinctive Primary education
Please get in touch via the school office or by emailing C.Governor@western.hants.sch.uk

The governors may also be contacted via the school office.
