Chair of Governors Welcome
Dear Parents, Carers and Friends,
On behalf of the Governors, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Hawksworth CE Primary School.
As a Governing Body, we are proud of our children and our warm, nurturing and dynamic church school. The Governing Body works hard to support the Headteacher, teaching staff and pupils with the aim of ensuring Hawksworth CE Primary School is the best it can be.
The role of the Governing Body is to ensure the school's statutory obligations are met in addition to reviewing and monitoring objectives, planning for the future, and making sure the vision for the school is both challenging and realistic. It is the responsibility of the Headteacher to run the school, however, it is the role of the Governing Board to support and strengthen the Headteacher’s leadership and to hold him accountable for the performance of children and staff.
All our Governors bring with them a range of different skills and experiences to enhance the leadership and management of the school within a great community. Decisions are taken by the whole Governing Body which meets once every term, while sub-committee meetings consider the more specific areas of staffing, curriculum, buildings and finance.
We feel extremely privileged to be part of the life of our successful and vibrant Church of England Primary School and appreciate the active and enthusiastic role Hawksworth parents play, both in the development and growth of the children and through the fundraising activities of our PTA, ‘Friends of Hawksworth’.
If you would like to know more about the role of Governors or would like to discuss any aspect of Hawksworth CE Primary School, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Mrs K. Loftus
