Governors hold the school to account in many ways to ensure your child has a very good learning journey whilst being at the school.

Governors hold the Leadership Team to account by reviewing every term the progress rates of all children at year group level and also by monitoring children by conducting Learning Walks with the Leadership Team to check if they are reaching age expected expectations. They ask questions like - has every child in the subject made progress? If not, what is being done to move the children forward? As a school, we have also set ourselves an ongoing target of being in the top 25% of schools nationally at Key Stage 2 so we ensure children are being stretched and challenged. Governors also monitor Boys' attainment compared to Girls to ensure our curriculum is balanced and monitor any children with special needs or have English as an Additional Language to ensure their needs are met and that they too make good progress. They also evaluate intervention strategies to support children with moving forward. Governors track termly trends to ensure progress is on track throughout the school.

Governors perform specific roles, for instance be a lead on Safeguarding, SEND, Wellbeing, Curriculum, Finance, Human Resources,  Health and Safety and Attainment and Progress. Each Lead Governor meets on a termly basis with the person who leads an area for development in school (Teacher Team Leader, Leadership Team or Business Manager) so that we ensure what the Leadership Team is telling us, is actually what happens operationally. This also gives Governors a great insight to resource needs and helps with planning and challenge for resources as well as overall development. It also gives the opportunity to build strong relationships with the school team.

Finally, Governors pay for an Education Advisor from Hampshire LA, known as our Lead Learning Partner to come and observe our teaching and validate our academic priorities. We want to ensure that our understanding of our school is validated by an external fresh set of eyes, at least two times a year. This again, gives the Leadership Team a professional challenge. As Governors, we also attend regular professional development to ensure their knowledge is in line with policy and best practise.

They are lucky enough to share with the children; excursions, open days and sessions, assemblies, time in class and just being stopped in school to be told of an achievement whilst they are in reviewing policies and carrying out their roles. Being a Governor is a privilege at Great Binfields Primary School. Parent Governors are regularly on the playground and should you wish to speak with the Chair of the Governing Body please ask at reception and an appointment can be made.
