Welcome from our Chair
Hello and a warm welcome to all our new parents and carers! Welcome back, too, to all our parents and carers with children who are returning for a new school year.
We wanted to take this opportunity to give you some background information on the role School Governors play, who we are and what we do and to provide you with an update on our work over the last 12 months.
We feel very privileged to be able to work with Ms Marsh and her staff to ensure that the children at Botley School receive the education that they deserve. We have the following functions:
We meet as a whole Governing Body six times a year. In addition to this, we have two committees, our Performance, Standards and Curriculum Committee and our Finance, Strategy and Resources Committee, each of which is responsible for different aspects of School life. Much of our work is done in these committees, and each committee will meet regularly each term. Some of our Governors also fulfil statutory roles which oversee different aspects of School life, for example Safeguarding and Health and Safety. As well as these roles, some of us are linked to specific subject areas within the School (for example, Maths, English and Special Educational Needs) and will visit the classroom regularly to review progress. You can find out more about us and what we do by following the links below.
