School Governors

Introduction by the Chairman of Governors

 

Neville_KenyonThe Governing Body is a group made up of representatives appointed by the Local Authority, parents, staff members and the local community. Governors are appointed for a period of four years and conduct a full meeting at least once a term – specialist sub committees meet at regular intervals.

The Governors, in conjunction with the Headteacher, ensure that the school’s education provision is dynamic through a process of continuous review. The Governing Body is responsible for addressing the special needs of the school in respect of the buildings and equipment and liaising with the Local Authority on any issues relating to the conduct of the school.

The Governors, Headteacher and staff work closely together and the school’s achievements are largely a measure of the dedication and competence of the head teacher and the staff with the commitment and support of the Governing Body.

I feel it a privilege to serve as a member of the Governing Body of Tottington High School.  My colleagues and I will continue to work diligently for the success of the school, its staff and students.
