Summerhill Governors

A Message from the Governors

The Governing Body believe in children receiving the best possible Primary School education. At the heart of its thinking, the Governing Body aims to provide the most suitable resources and learning environment, both inside the building and surrounding grounds, to support the children’s learning. The Governors share the same ethos as the School Management and work in partnership to achieve these aims. We hope this website will provide you with the information you need about the School and that you find it useful.

We believe we have appointed governors who have the skills to contribute to effective governance and the success of the school.
We review our effectiveness regularly, including the extent to which our size and structure is fit for purpose and our members have the necessary skills.
Our governors are encouraged to commit to training and a budget is set aside for this.
Governors hold an important office and we share their identity with the wider community.  Within these pages you will find up to date details of our governance arrangements in a readily accessible format.
A code of conduct is maintained and there is an explicit agreement to the code of conduct which means there is a common reference point should any difficulties arise.  All our governors have signed the code of conduct.
