School Governance

 

School governors form the largest volunteer group in the country. They are people from all walks of life, who care about children’s education and are prepared to work as a team to support their school and local community.

More than 9,000 people volunteer to be governors in Lancashire, bringing to their role experience of everyday life and a wish to help children and schools. They support schools in raising standards, by determining the conduct and direction of the school.

Effective governors do not need educational expertise but do need to be committed to their school, willing to ask questions and act as a critical friend. They also need to be able to work as an enthusiastic member of the governing body team. The headteacher works closely with the governing body as its principal professional advisor. Governing body policy decisions will then be implemented by the headteacher in the day-to-day running of the school.

They will be supported by other governors on the governing body as well as by Lancashire County Council, through the Governor Services Team.

A Message from the Chair of our Governing Body

 

Welcome to the governors page of our school website. As you’ll have seen Calder Vale is a happy and vibrant community set in the beautiful Forest of Bowland, providing unique opportunities for our children.

As a governing board we work with the headteacher to set the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction and oversee the school’s financial performance. We have a strong relationship with the headteacher and staff to ensure we provide the very best education and care, so children can develop as individuals ready to move on to the next stage in their lives. To help us do this we have a governing board with a variety of skills and experiences. Also our unique collaboration with Scorton Primary School allows us to share expertise and resources to the benefit of the children of both schools. Both governing boards meet together on a regular basis.

We welcome anyone who is interested in joining us to contact the school. I look forward to hearing from you.
