Welcome to our Governors’ section.
Welcome to the Governors’ section of Loddon Primary Federation website.
The Governing Body at Loddon Primary Federation is made up of a group of motivated volunteers who have been elected to provide strategic direction for the school, in partnership with the Head Teacher. The Governing Body comprises of parents of children currently at the school, Foundation Governors, Co-Opted Governors and Staff Governors, all offering specific expertise and experience to support the school.
The Governing Body works with the Head Teacher to ensure that the school continues to provide our children with engaging learning opportunities within a happy and secure environment. They ensure that local and national government legislation is met, oversee the spend on the school budget, and provide support and challenge.
Governors take an active role in the school, not only attending meetings and training, but also school functions, and undertaking visits to classrooms.
If you wish to communicate with the Chair of Governors, Heather Tew, or Vice-Chair, David Owen then please contact the school office.
Committees and Meetings
The governing body fulfils its duties through formal meetings of the whole board and three sub-committees. The sub-committees comprise of: The Steering Group, which sets the overall direction and priorities for governors each term; Curriculum & Outcomes which scrutinises academic performance, teaching and learning and the curriculum; Resources. which oversees all financial matters, human resources (personnel) and premises. There are a number of other committees which meet for specific activities during the school year, for example Headteacher Performance Management.
Register of business & pecuniary interests
The register should set out the relevant business interests of governors and details of any other educational establishments they govern. The register should also set out any relationships between governors and members of the school staff including spouses, partners and relatives.
The register enables governors to demonstrate that in spending public money they do not benefit personally from decisions that they make.
