Message from the Chair of Governors                

On behalf of the Governing Body, I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to all those visiting our website.  Kinderley Community Primary School is a friendly and inclusive village school, providing for children from 2 - 11 years old.   

Led by our experienced Headteacher, there is a strong focus on providing a caring and nurturing environment in which every child will thrive and do well. We believe that every child is unique and our whole team is committed to ensuring an exciting, good quality education for every pupil coming to our school.

Our governing body is made up of eight governors including the Headteacher. Governors come from a range of professional backgrounds and all have high quality training to equip them for their particular role in school.

We make regular, purposeful visits to school to enable us to carry out our three core functions effectively:

1. holding leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

2. overseeing the financial performance of the school, making sure that money is well spent

3. developing a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school that is relevant to our community.

Finance Governors monitor the school budget very closely to check that income and expenditure are on track and any variances promptly followed up. We ensure that the budget is used effectively to secure the best educational provision and outcomes for our pupils.

Teaching & Learning Governors work with the Headteacher and staff with a focus on how the school is performing against the objectives in the School Development Plan. Pupil performance data is evaluated and monitored every term and all governors are interested in children’s progress and their wellbeing.

Governors thoroughly enjoy working alongside school leaders, staff and pupils; seeing the curriculum come to life in the hands of our experienced teaching team and chatting to children about what they are learning. 

Our fantastic parents, however, are equally as important to their child’s success, and we thank you all for the valuable contribution you make to your child’s learning by:

If you spot a governor or me at a school event, please stop to say hello, or if you would like to get in touch with me, please email me at:
