Governors

 

The Chair and Vice Chair are selected annually from within the Governing Body.

 

Governors are appointed / elected to the Governing Body for a period of four years.

 

The full governing body meets termly, as do the sub-committees (Business & Finance Committee, Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare Committee, Attainment, Teaching, Learning & Assessment Committee and Leadership & Management Committee)

 

Dear Parents,

 

Welcome to Chowbent!

 

I am so pleased that you have taken the time to consider Chowbent for your child. We believe that we have a lot to offer your child and your family. As a governing body we recognise the fact that an effective school is one that engages with and welcomes parental support and involvement. We have recently refurbished a room in school to be used by our families and we have lots of exciting family events lined up. Our aim is to create an environment in which all children can develop to their full potential.  We want the children who come to Chowbent to be proud of their school and of themselves. Children at Chowbent are listened to and have an input into their education through school councils.

 

One of our key strengths is the pastoral care we give to our children. This was recognised by OFSTED who said “a current strength of provision is the care guidance, and support we give.”

 

On behalf of the governing body I warmly invite you to look around our school and talk to all our staff and children-they will give you an insight into what it is like to belong to Chowbent School. You will be assured of a warm Chowbent welcome from everyone at school.

 

As a mother of four I know that deciding which primary school to send your child to is one of the most important decisions that you will make. I hope you will consider, as I did, that Chowbent is the right school for your child.

 

I look forward to meeting you in the near future.
