We are all volunteers dedicated to supporting our children by raising school standards.
Coming from the local community, we bring skills from other areas of our life and work closely with the head teacher to give a viewpoint from outside the educational establishment. This allows us to be a ‘critical friend’, supporting and challenging the head teacher as aims and objectives are set. With the head teacher as our professional advisor we set policies and targets for achieving these aims and objectives as well as monitoring and evaluating the progress being made.
We spend time with the head teacher and senior leadership team looking at tracking data, and ensuring limited resources are used to best effect. Providing strategic leadership and accountability may be our official role, but everything we do centres around the education and well-being of our children.
