Our Governors

Dear Parents, Carers and friends,
Welcome to the new Governors’ section of the school website! Here you will be able to find out who we are and what our role is as part of the Ladywood Primary School family.
One of the things we will be doing is to publish a letter here each term, to keep us in touch with you and let you know what we are doing.
Who are the Governors?
We are a group of people who give our time, effort and skills to ensure that Ladywood is the best it can be and that everyone in the school achieves their potential.
The Governing Body was re-constituted in 2015/16  and there are now eight governors. Here is a full list of the present Governors, with links to more information about each of us.
Chair of Governors/  Local Authority        Mrs Pam Randall              Community Governor                      Mr Geoff Pickard
Community Governor                               Pastor Joy Gascoigne      Community Governor                      Ms Shannon Marshall
Parent Governor                                      Mr Adam Nippers              Vice Chair/Parent Governor            Mrs Elizabeth Eland
Headteacher                                            Miss Clare Grainger          Staff Representative                       Mrs Claire Hawkridge
Because we are a small group, instead of having separate committees we meet altogether each month to discuss school matters. Each term we also have a more formal meeting which is attended and minuted by a member of the Local Authority.
What is the role of Governors?
Governors act as the school’s ‘critical friend’.
We do this by
  1. Working at a strategic (planning) level to help raise standards
  2. Supporting and challenging the Headteacher and staff
  3. Monitoring and evaluating the school’s progress towards priorities and  targets
  4. Being accountable to everyone connected to the school for the school’s performance and the decisions we have made
We have responsibility for all key areas of school such as Safeguarding, Finance, Health and Safety, Human Resources, Pupil Progress and School Improvements.
You will soon be able to put faces to our names as we are producing a leaflet introducing each of us, which will be available here and also in the school entrance.
We are looking forward to a very successful and happy year for all our children and families.
Many thanks

The Governors
