Welcome to Park Hill, my name is Sarah and I am Chair of Governors.
My journey at Park Hill started five years ago when my daughter joined nursery – she is now in Year Three and my son is in his second year of Pre-School. This is my fourth year of being a parent governor at Park Hill and during that time I have been Chair of the Resources Committee, part of the Pay Committee and undertaken the annual Performance Review for the Head Teacher.
Primary school provides is the foundation of education and paves the way for our children’s educational journey. It can impact not only their educational path, but also helps bring out their personalities, social skills and non-academic interests whilst making them feel part of the local community. As a school it is our job to provide children with an environment where they feel safe, secure and happy enabling them to learn and develop to their full potential.
As a governing board our role is to support, guide and challenge the school so that together we can give children and parents the best experience possible during their time with us.
We do this by:
· Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
· Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.
· Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
Myself and fellow governors can regularly been seen in and around school watching assemblies, supporting SEND activities and working with the senior leadership team.
Park Hill has some fantastic achievements already under its belt, but I am confident that if pupils, parents, teachers and governors continue to work together we can ensure the school receives the outstanding recognition it deserves.
