As a governing board, we have three core functions:

  • Clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • To hold the Headteachers to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.
  • To ensure financial probity and oversee the financial performance of both schools making sure that money well spent.


At Boldmere we have extended these to include a fourth element:

  • To build positive, professional relationships with the school community.


To fulfil our responsibilities to both schools we have developed sustainable and flexible strategies that are included in an integrated model of governance that is embedded within the school teams, with our principal focus always being the progression, development and safety of children in our care.  In support of that, attracting and keeping the best people is at the heart of our recruitment and retention programme, ensuring that we understand the school and it needs and make the very best use of our finances to that we know we are getting and offering the best value for money possible.  We also recognize that the relationships between parents and school has a direct impact on learning.  To be truly successful teams need to maintain a positive two way dialogue and accordingly we are continuing to improve and develop effective communication. If you would like to talk to any of our governors then I would encourage you to contact any of us at any time.
