We are fortunate in having an excellent team of staff at Gomersal Primary School who all work hard in their various roles, each contributing towards the education of every child.
My role as Chair is to lead the governing body and co-ordinate their work, as well as to chair meetings and liaise with the Headteacher. The governing body meets once per half term, and there are governor committees which meet for specific purposes eg.finance. The agenda and minutes of the governing body are public documents, available by request from school. Governors frequently attend training courses and network meetings with the Local Authority. How they do their job affects the interests of our children, staff morale and how the school is seen by parents and children.
The governors main role is to help raise standards of achievement, working with the Headteacher to promote effective ways of teaching and learning while setting the schools aims and policies.
