Alongside the senior leadership team at Radcliffe Primary, governors are responsible for deciding on the strategic direction of the school. This includes contributing to decisions on:
vision and values
behaviour and standards
equality and inclusion
health, safety and safeguarding
special educational needs
parental and community engagement
We fulfil statutory duties to ensure that the school is a safe, healthy and inclusive place. We support and challenge the school leadership team, acting as a ‘critical friend’. We each contribute our experience and expertise to drive school improvement forward. We meet in committees and once a term as a full Governing Body.
The Governing Body is drawn from the staff of the school, parents and the local community.
Parent governors play a vital role on the Governing Body and their contribution is greatly valued. If you are interested in becoming a parent governor, please contact Glyn Whitworth, Chair of Governors, via the school office.
Contacting the governors: We welcome the views of parents and are always happy to discuss any concerns or ideas you may have to improve the school.
