WYKE REGIS PRIMARY FEDERATION

Governing Body

Governors

I am absolutely delighted to have been elected Chair of Governors for the 2018-19 academic year.  I am very much looking forward to continuing to work with our very dedicated governing body, the senior management team and of course all the school staff to ensure that the children get the best possible education, in a supported, friendly and safe manner.

 

I have a long association with the Federation … back to the 1930’s!  My father, my wife and I myself all attended the junior school and my two children attended both the Infant and Junior Schools.  Living as close to the school as I do,  I have literally seen it just about every day of my life.

 

I have to be honest and say that there are many challenges ahead for the Federation (as there are for every other school in Dorset) in term of tough performance requirements and very tight financial constraints.  The task ahead will not be easy, but I am convinced that if the staff, governors, parents and friends of the federation all work together as one big famuly, all pushing in the same direction, the tasks ahead will be easier to achieve.

 

I hope to have the opportunity to meet and chat with parents as often as possible, but if in the meantime you need to speak to me or make me aware of something,  you can contact me via the school office(s) or by email.

Personal Profile

The full governing body meet every half term and ensure that the school meets its statutory duties. Governors are also organised into two main committees: School Improvement and Finance & Environment in order to undertake their work. A further Pay Review committee undertakes the annual pay review.

The governing body have the authority to co-opt new governors in order to strengthen their skills as a body. Vacancies for parent governors are advertised in line with the DCC protocol.

It is hoped that if parents have a concern or a complaint about the school’s curriculum or other issues that they would, in the first instance, contact a class teacher or year leader.

If not resolved, parents should then contact the Assistant Head or Head of Federation. If they wish to make a formal complaint they may contact the Chair of the Governors, Mr Gary Hepburn
