Message from the Chair of Governors

 

We are from different backgrounds:

  • Some of us are Foundation Governors – we are appointed by Christ Church, Walmsley.
  • Some of us are LA Governors – we are appointed by the Local Authority in Bolton.
  • Some of us are Parent Governors – we are elected by the parents of the children who attend Walmsley C.E. School.
  • We have a Staff Governor – who is chosen by the staff at Walmsley C.E. School.

 

Many of us have long-standing connections with Walmsley C.E. School. Some of us even came to our school when we were young! Most of us have children who attended Walmsley C.E. School or who are currently enjoying their education at our wonderful school.

The one thing we all have in common is that we believe that the children and staff at Walmsley C.E. Primary School are outstanding in every way. We have first hand experience of seeing that the children and staff are committed to our ethos - 'where getting better never stops'. 

 

How do we help?

  • We are here to help and support the Senior Leadership Team of our school.
  • We are involved in planning our school's future development and direction.
  • We have high expectations of what our pupils can achieve.
  • We listen to our teaching staff and support them in all areas of teaching and learning.
  • We encourage our pupils' spiritual, moral and social development.
  • We support our school in providing for all our pupils, irrespective of background, including those with special needs.
  • We are accountable for the performance of our school to parents and to the wider community.
  • We help our Senior Leadership Team make decisions on our school's budget.

 

How can we support continuous improvement at Walmsley?

  • We support and challenge by gathering views and asking questions.
  • We are prepared to give and take, being loyal to the decisions taking by the governing body as a whole.
  • We listen to our staff and learn from them through the committees we attend.
  • We analyse the school's data.
  • We visit our school and talk to our pupils.
  • We also blog – so keep up with our posts
