The Governing body is made up of staff, parents, members of the Local Authority and members of the local community. Governors play a vital role in the leadership and management of the school, providing support and challenge to ensure that the school is the very best that it can be. They set the strategic direction of the school by working with the leadership team to, amongst other responsibilities, agree policies, set and review targets, review budgets and staffing, ensure parents and pupils are involved, consulted and informed as appropriate, and make information available to the community.
At Studlands Rise the governors take a keen interest in the school and regularly visit to make sure that they understand how the school runs on a day-to-day basis by taking part in learning walks with the leadership team, conducting some staff and pupil voice, taking part in class trips, supporting whole school events, to name just a few.
The Full Governing Body meets termly. The Curriculum committee and Finance, Premises and Personnel committee also hold joint meetings on a termly basis.
Please direct any correspondence that you have for school governors to the school office.
Governor Committee Membership and Term of Office Governor Attendance at Meetings
Member of Finance, Premises and Personnel Committee
I started work in the school office, 25+ years ago, for just a few hours a day when my children were young. As my family grew up and moved on, the job grew and changed, so my hours gradually increased to full time – and I still really enjoy every aspect of my job. When a governor vacancy came up in 2014, I decided that the time was right for me to become involved beyond my day-to-day work. I was elected as a Co-opted Governor and am part of the Finance, Premises and Personnel Committee. I feel privileged to be part of a team that works hard to ensure that the right decisions are made with the best for the children as the priority.
Studlands Rise is a wonderful school - both of my children came to school here and then 2 of my grandchildren also attended so it has been a huge part of my life for many years. I feel very fortunate to be working in such a caring environment where everyone is friendly and fully committed to ensuring that every child achieves the best that they possibly can.
