Governors

At Cheriton Primary School we have a Governing Body who bring a vast range of skills and enthusiasm to the school.

The Department for Education (http://www.education.gov.uk/a0056625/the-role-of-governor-within-the-governing-body) say that ...

The purpose of having a governing body is to

  • help the school to set high standards by planning for the school's future and setting targets for school improvement
  • keep the pressure up on school improvement
  • be a critical friend to the school, offering support and advice
  • help the school respond to the needs of parents and the community
  • make the school accountable to the public for what it does
  • work with the school on planning, developing policies and keeping the school under review
  • exercise its responsibilities and powers in partnership with the headteacher and staff
  • not intervene in the day-to-day management of the school unless there are weaknesses in the school, when it then has a duty to take action.

At Cheriton we feel that we are now poised to reach and exceed these expectations.

 Sarah Elliott

Our Chair of Governors is Sarah Elliot. She has a child in Year R, as well as a 'lively toddler'.

"I work for KCC as a clerk to Governing Bodies and look after several schools locally. My experience of school governance is wide and includes assisting individual Governors and Governing bodies to develop their skills and strategic approach.   Prior to having my children, I worked as a bank manager which has certainly helped my understanding of school finance!  I have transferable skills and experience in strategic development, coaching and mentoring and staff management.  My time during the school day is very flexible and allows me time to get to know the school really well as a parent representative. 

I see on a daily basis how the commitment of governors as volunteers can make a real difference and would like to offer my time and experience as a volunteer where my own child attends school. 

My hopes and dreams for the school are that every child has the opportunity through their school life experiences not only to become learners and achieve their best academically,  but to become rounded individuals who are ready for their on-going education.  That they leave primary school having learned to value themselves and others as confident young people."
