Shenton Primary School

Empowering and nurturing young minds to achieve excellence

Shenton School Governors


The Governing Body meets every term as a whole group, to discuss how well the school is doing.  The Governors aim to ensure the children are given the best possible educational opportunities. Many have or have had children in the school, and are deeply committed to continuing to improve the school. Governors take a lead in supporting and challenging the Headteacher to continue to make changes that will improve learning outcomes for children. Governors also meet in smaller committee groups. These are:

Finance, Pay & Personnel

This committee tracks school expenditure and ensures spending matches into priority areas for development. They also ensure that policies related to the terms and conditions of employment are fair and equitably applied.

Health & Safety

This committee ensures the school is a safe place for children, this includes making sure school buildings, equipment etc. meet the appropriate standards. This committee also overseas all safeguarding practises, making sure that any vulnerable children receive appropriate support.

School Improvement

This committee focuses on teaching & learning, this means they analyse school performance data about children's learning to make sure future plans address any areas that need improvement. They then track to ensure plans are followed through effectively.

Governors visit the school regularly, providing reports for the Headteacher. This helps to make sure that alternate points of view are taken into account when establishing how effective policies are.

The role of being a Shenton Governor is very rewarding, many improvements have been seen over the past 5 years. Some of these include the higher levels of respect that the children currently demonstrate towards each other, their passion for learning which can be seen through the much greater range of opportunities we provide, as well as in improved test scores.
