Governors

 Welcome from the Chair of Governors, Jackie Brookes

Welcome to the Governors’ page of the Hawthorn Community Primary School website.

The members of our Governing Body are listed in this section of the website along with their contact details.

Our primary purpose is to ensure the quality of education provision and to act as the accountable body for the school. We are also shortly to become a part of the Montsaye Community Learning Partnership and will work closely with the Trust Board in carrying out our work.

We have a number of key roles in the running of the school. These are to:

  • set the strategic direction, vision and ethos of the school;
  • monitor and challenge the progress of the school in achieving its priorities;
  • recruit and performance manage the headteacher;
  • exercise employer responsibility;
  • ensure that the schools meet their statutory responsibilities;
  • ensure financial probity;
  • ensure the premises are well managed;
  • report to the school’s stakeholders.

During our last inspection in March 2017, OFSTED identified that:

Governors are ambitious for the school. They acknowledge that the ways they have held all leaders to account have not been as sharply focused as they could have been. They are determined to continue to act on the advice from the recent review of governance to ensure that they are a highly effective governing body.”
