Introduction to the Governors

 

The Governing Body of Lubbins Park Primary Academy School is made up of a team of dedicated individuals, including parents of pupils or of former pupils of the school. We also have Governors from the local community. We all serve as Governors on a purely voluntary basis, working with the children, staff and parents as a team.

The school is an Academy School and part of the Epsilon Star Multi Academy Trust. The Governing Body comprises a Director, the Executive Headteacher, Head of Academy, one staff, two Parent Governors and two Co-opted Governors. At the time of going to print, we have vacancies for one Co-opted Governor and one Parent Governor. For current vacancies, registered parents at the school will vote for proposed candidates for the role of Parent Governor. Parents will be notified of any vacancies as they arise and the procedures for appointing. Other Governors are chosen by the Governing Body from the local community, and appointed by the Directors of the Trust. They bring many skills to the school and to the Governing Body and their contribution is much appreciated.

The full Governing Body usually meets once a term. The minutes of all Governors meetings and copies of all policy documents are readily available from the school office. If you would like to read/borrow a copy of any of the school policies or procedures please enquire at the school office.

If you have any issues regarding the school that you would like to discuss with the Governors, please write to the Chair of Governors via the school office. We are confident that you will be happy with our school, but in the unlikely event of any complaint or concern about any aspect of the school, do not hesitate to come in and speak to the Headteacher. We aim to work together for the benefit of the children at all times. A copy of the school’s complaints procedure may be obtained from the office.

We all come into school at various times to see the school in action. Each Governor has a link subject role so that we are aware of the teaching and learning taking place in school and across the curriculum. Governors also take part in Educational Visits, school events and parents’ evenings.

We work closely with the parents and staff to ensure that the teaching and learning at Lubbins Park Primary Academy School is of the highest quality.

If you would like further information about the Governing Body, I am sure that any Governor would be pleased to answer your questions, or alternatively please feel free to write to me. Please address any correspondence to the school.

Thank you for your interest and I do hope we shall be able to offer your child/children the very best education during their time with us at Lubbins Park Primary Academy School

With my best regards;

Steve Woolf, Chair of Governors
