Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governor section.

A Warm Welcome to the Governor page of our website

The Governing body is a team of volunteers that have the important job of looking at the overall direction of the school.  It is made up of representatives from the Local Education Authority, the community, members of staff and elected parents. Our school is a vibrant and exciting place and the Governors, like the staff, are professional, committed and keen to ensure that every child reaches their full potential.  

Governors act as ‘critical friends’ of the school, supporting the Head teacher and staff.  They monitor and evaluate the school to ensure that best practice is always followed and help to create a safe learning environment that delivers the best possible education to all our pupils.

 

I truly believe that to be successful school we must all – parents, school staff and governors work together in partnership for the benefit of each child. I can be contacted via the school office should any parent wish to speak to me.

 

Kind Regards
Kashfa Kalim Barlow
Chair of Governors
Irk Valley Community School
