Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

Welcome to the governors’ section of Loddon Primary Federation website.

Every school has a governing body to represent the public and community in the running of the school. The governors are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education.  Our governors at Loddon Primary Federation bring perspectives & experience from their life & work to strive for excellence in the care and education of all children at the school.

All school governors at Loddon Primary Federation volunteer their time to work in partnership with the Headteacher to oversee the strategic development of the school with a common goal to provide a high standard of education for all pupils, whatever their ability or needs.

None of our governors have declared any relevant business & pecuniary interests.  Any relationships between governors & members of the school (including spouses, partners & relatives) are included in their personal information.

We hope that you find the information in this section useful and if you want to get in touch with governors please leave a message with the school office.

What is a register of business & pecuniary interests?

It is a list of any business or financial interests.  For example: the company the person or people close to them work for, directorships, significant shareholdings or other appointments within a business or other organisation which may have dealings with the school.

The register enables governors to demonstrate that in spending public money they do not benefit personally from decisions that they make.

Governors who serve on other School Governing Body Committees:

Heather Tew – Sewell Park College, Horatio House

John Organ – Clarion Academy Trust, Bluebell Primary School, Hobart High School, Winterton Primary IEB, Horatio House 

Paul Graveling – Brundall Primary School

The Governors are responsible for policy and strategy and the Headteacher is responsible for the day-to- day running of the school and ensuring that the policy and strategy agreed by the Governors is implemented. The Governing Body has a large number of legal responsibilities and amongst these are ensuring that the National Curriculum is properly delivered, arranging for religious education to be carried out, deciding how to spend the delegated budget and approving the many different school policies, such as those referring to discipline and behaviour and health and safety.

In this section of the website you can find out who the governors of our school are.

If you would like to contact the governors, please do so by phoning the school at the number on this website’s front page or by emailing the school.
