Learning and Achieving Together

Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governors' section of our Website.

Please find detailed below a little about the work of our Governors:-

 

The Governors at Hobletts Manor Junior School have been elected or appointed to represent Parent/Carers, Staff and various groups within the community.

The Governors work closely with the school staff to support the school and to help it to meet its statutory obligations. This covers three main areas:

·         Strategic: involving setting policies, planning for the future and managing change.

 

·         Monitoring and accountability: ensuring the school meets educational and financial targets and has plans in place to meet performance objectives.

 

·         Supporting: supporting the school by celebrating and praising achievement, but also act as a critical friend, seeking improvement and asking questions where appropriate.

 

The full Governing Board meets on a regular basis, usually a minimum of once a term. In between these meetings, governors also meet together to undertake a closer look at a particular aspect of the school's work, linked to their Strategic Role.
Governors also try to visit the school during the day, linked to their area of responsibility and at events such as Family Consultation Evenings. They also represent the school at a variety of functions and meetings. 

Once a year Governors hold a 'Strategy Day' with all governors spending a whole day in school focusing on various aspects of the school.  Along with this Governors regularly attend formal training organised by Herts. Governance.
 
The Governing Board at Hobletts Manor works closely with staff and individual governors are actively involved in school life. For example conducting focus groups with pupils or visiting classrooms.
 
As a Governing Board we encourage (and need) feedback from our parents/carers and we are always happy to meet with you. Contact can be made via the school office.
