Welcome letter from the Chair of Governors
Hello my name is David Burgess.
I feel very privileged to have been elected chair of governors for this new academic year and to be working with such a professional team of staff and governors.
Governors are volunteers and our main role is to work with the school ensuring that your children receive the best education in a supportive and safe setting.
At Beaumont Lodge Primary School, Governors, staff, parents and children work together in a happy, creative and high attaining environment; with our core values of learn, enjoy, develop and succeed underpinning everything that we do.
The Governing Body is involved with our school at every level. This includes finance, safeguarding, premises management and staff appointments. As Governors, we consider our most important role to be the safety, welfare and education of our pupils.
The children in our school achieve high standards across the curriculum. We are justifiably very proud of them and would like to thank the parents who encourage and support their children so admirably. In a good school, such as ours, parents take a great interest in their child’s learning and development. During the early years of primary education, academic, personal, social and creative skills are nurtured and developed.
Governors are appointed to ensure that objectives are met, and that future planning is both visionary and realistic. We provide strategic direction for the improvement of the school; monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the school; and hold the school to account for the standards achieved and the quality of education. We are here to support and encourage our Headteacher, Senior Leadership Team and all school personnel to ensure that every one of our children has access to an enriched education and to all the opportunities that they deserve.
In order to bring about real changes to the lives of our children we, as a Governing Body, are committed to four main objectives:
To improve outcomes for all children through quality teaching and learning;
To extend the Beaumont Lodge offer to create wider opportunities for all children to develop their skills and talents;
To develop sustainable, high quality and accountable leadership at all levels throughout the school;
To work in partnership with other schools, parents and the wider school community to enrich our school.
Should you wish to contact me to discuss any matter further. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by letter left at the school office. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible throughout the school year.
