Governors

Welcome Message from our Chair of Governors

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the section of our website where you can find out who the governors are, what we do and to read our FGB (Full Governing Board) meeting minutes.

Governors are part of the strategic leadership of the school, we have a role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education.  We do this by promoting high standards of achievement and supporting Jude Ramshaw in her leadership role.

We have a wide range of duties based upon ensuring clear plans for school improvement are in place, holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and for managing the school budget to ensure that its money is well spent. In addition, we are involved in key leadership appointments and developing policies and procedures.

In order to do this, as individuals we spend time within the school in both lessons and in the monitoring of its policies and pupils' work.  This combined with discussions with key members of staff and the pupils themselves gives us a clearer view of the day to day happenings and possible ways forward.

During their time at Court Lane Academy as well as making progress and achieving, we want every child to delight in the world around them and to thrive so that they will grow and become lifelong learners.
