Dear Parents, Carers, children and their families,
We are truly delighted to be serving as Co-Chair of your Governing Board. As a fully inclusive school, where each of our children and their uniqueness is valued, Lum Head Primary School represents a diverse community where strong relationships between pupils, adults and the wider community are valued and are central to the work of the Governing Board.
Teaching at Lum Head ensures that every child’s unique qualities are recognised and nurtured in order that they achieve the highest academic success, and in order that they are fully prepared to take their place in modern British society as resilient citizens with the highest of aspirations and a life-long love of learning.
To achieve this, and to enable children to flourish at Lum Head Primary School, the Governing Board supports the school through active governance. This means that every member of your Governing Board is committed to offering both challenge and support to the Headteacher, the Senior Leadership Team, and the wider school; holding the school to account for the impact of its actions, including financial provision and planning, and actively promoting the health, safety and well-being of the children.
We feel proud and privileged to be involved in school life, in the widest sense possible, so when you see us in and around school, please do say hello.
So, here’s to a fantastic year ahead, with busy, active, stimulated learners and our amazing and dedicated staff and volunteering team.
Louise Skelhorn & Una Devlin,
Co-Chairs of the Governing Board,
Lum Head Primary School.
Governors have three main roles:
- To provide strategic direction for the school
- To act as a critical friend to the headteacher
- To ensure accountability
