Hello, my name is Michaela Morris and I am proud to be the Chair of Governors at this wonderful school.

At the present time we have seven Governors and one Associate Member, We are able to bring  our skills and knowledge from various walks of life and use our experience and expertise to ensure that Hunnyhill Primary School provides an environment in which our current pupils and those of the future are able to prosper, both educationally and otherwise. We aim to do this by using the “Hunnyhill Way”, a culture that supports learning, fun, respect and challenge and allows every pupil to thrive and achieve to the very best of their abilities.

Why do we have governors?

The Governors act as a ‘critical friend’ to the Headteacher. We challenge and monitor the progress made by all ages within the school.

How do we monitor?

We typically look at data collected by the school, the Local Authority and Ofsted and use this to define our School Improvement Plan (SIP). It is this document that provides the overarching and individual plans to allow us to continuously improve.

Governors visit the school to talk with members of staff and pupils as their views are important. The views of parents are asked for and filling in questionnaires sent by the school is valuable feedback for governors.

As governors, our decisions are driven by what is best for the children of the school; many of us have had, or still do have children in the school today.

The Governing Body has two elected parent governors who serve a four year term of office; when these positions become vacant an election is held and any parent/carer of a child at Hunnyhill Primary is eligible to put themselves forward.

Yours Sincerely
