Our Governors

WELCOME TO THE Governors’ section of the Parkend School website. All the Governors are proud of our School and of the significant progress the school has made in recent years. Our last visit from Ofsted in April 2013 secured a ‘Good’ judgment across all areas of the School and much credit for this is due to the teaching and support staff.


IT IS OUR function as a Board of Governors to challenge and support the staff at Parkend School in the style of a critical friend. Our role is threefold:

To provide a strategic view – helping the school to set a strategy for improvement so that pupils will learn more effectively and achieve their highest standards. This includes the suitability of the environment in which they learn.

Whilst the Head is responsible for the day to day management of the School, the Board of Governors provides support and advice, drawing on its collective knowledge and experience from both inside and outside education. We monitor and evaluate the School’s effectiveness and seek to promote at all times the interests of the School and its pupils.

The Board of Governors is responsible for the quality of education provided to pupils and the curriculum delivered. We help to set and regularly review the broad framework within which the Head and the staff run the School.

These functions are carried out via a structure of Full Governing Body and three Sub-Committees;

Resources; finances, budgets, premises, staffing.

Curriculum and Standards; teaching, learning, assessment, pupil progress and attainment.

Health and Safety; with regard to pupils, staff and all School visitors.


THE GOVERNING BODY at Parkend School is comprised of Local Authority, Community and Parent Governors, who work on behalf of the School on an entirely voluntary basis. Governors are custodians of the School for future generations of pupils. All stakeholders in the School should be aware of the strong support and commitment that the current Board of Governors provides.
