Welcome to the Middleton Governors’ page
Chair of Governors
All the governors are very proud of our school. It is welcoming, with a happy inclusive atmosphere where all children are encouraged to achieve their full potential, not only in their educational learning but also in sports, creativity and social awareness. You will see examples of the school’s activities in a wide range of areas throughout this website.
We are responsible for the overall work of Middleton Primary and Nursery School and for promoting high standards. We aim to ensure that it is a successful school, which provides its children with a good education and supports their well-being.
Who we are
The governing body is made up of six parent-governors who are elected by the parents and six co-opted governors, two staff governors and the Head Teacher. Our term of office is four years. None of our governors have any relevant financial or pecuniary interests and none of them have a governance role at any other schools.
What we do
- We set the strategic direction of the school
- We challenge and support the school by monitoring, reviewing and evaluating
- We hold the school to account for its work
- We make sure parents and pupils are involved, consulted and informed as appropriate
- We make information available to the community
How we work
We have one full governor meeting and two sub-committee meetings every term. We also have Link Governors who look closely at particular aspects of the school’s work and make regular visits to school to meet staff and children.
Contacting the governors
If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions we would really like to hear from you. You can contact the governors either by approaching any of us in person or via the school office.
Becoming a Governor
Any parent can stand for election to the governing body. If you are interested in becoming a school governor, and would like more information, please speak to the Head Teacher or to any of the governors.
