Attendance Matters Board

As governors we become involved with a variety of issues including finance, pupil welfare, HR & staff appointments, health and safety, maintenance of buildings and grounds. However we consider our most important role is to monitor, support and challenge the education and well being of the children.

Governors are appointed to ensure that objectives are met and that planning for the future is both visionary and realistic. We are here to support and encourage the Head teacher and all school personnel so that children have access to an enriched education and the opportunities they deserve.

Bluebell Code of Practice for Governors

Choosing where your child will grow and learn is very important. This is an opportunity for us to thank all the parents who encourage and support their children so well. The strong partnership, which already exists between school and community, underpins the ethos, which is so characteristic of Bluebell Primary School.

Parents and governors have key roles in helping Bluebell Primary School to raise standards for all our children both now and for future generations.

If you have any specific questions about the governing body please do not hesitate to ask, pop into the office and arrange a meeting with one of the governors.

Best wishes
Governors of Bluebell Primary School
