The Governing Board at Kimpton Primary School are passionate about delivering our school vision: 'students are safe and happy, inspired by a love of learning, achieving today and ready for tomorrow'. We work with the school setting the strategic direction, vision and ethos. We oversee the financial performance of the school and, as a critical friend, we hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its students.
Each term the Co-Chairs of Governors send a communication home to parents and carers. This neatly reflects the board's perspective on the school's developmental journey; summaring the key successes of the term whilst also sharing any specific activities that have taken place over the term. Please find below the communications for the last three terms:
Autumn Term 2021 Communication
Summer Term 2020 Communication
Spring Term 2020 Communication
The school Governing Board consists of two parent governors, one staff governor, the headteacher, nine co-opted governors and a local authority governor. To maximise our effectiveness we have two co-chairs and organise ourselves into two main committees and several specialist working groups. You can see our structure here:
Governor Code of Conduct
All of our governors are inducted into the FGB and are allocated a mentor to support them as they settle into the role. All of our governors, just like our staff, follow a Code of Conduct. This is reviewed annually and updated as appropriate.
