Rotherfield Primary School Growing futures

Meet Our Governors

Governors have a vital role to play in providing strategic direction and challenge to our school

 

Our Governors come from a range of backgrounds, and bring different areas of expertise to the school.  Governors contribute to ensuring high standards of achievement for all children in the school by:

 

  • setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;
  • overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

 

A Governor’s role is to support and challenge the senior staff to continue to improve the school.  It is largely a thinking and questioning role and Governors are not there to manage the school or do the jobs of school staff.  Governors fulfil their role by regularly attending Governing Body meetings, providing strategic guidance and by asking probing and challenging questions of leaders within the school.  They also undertake visits, serve on relevant committees and oversee the Headteacher’s performance management.


We expect all governors to uphold the seven principles of public life (the Nolan principles) which form the basis of the ethical standards expected of all public office holders: selflessness, integrity; objectivity; accountability; openness; honesty; and leadership.

Our Governors:

Janice Bailey
Toni Barnes
  Andrew Bosi
Mark Boyle
Jane Cramp
Tobias Davidson
Jack Graves
Richard Hodgson
  Ollie Lawson
Nikki Parrott
Lorraine Rowhan
