School Governors

Part of the role of the Governing Body is to be accountable for standards in the school and for the value for money the school provides. In order to fulil these roles, the Governors at Rossmore School are involved in providing the strategic direction of the school and monitoring the progress towards the desired goals. This involves:

  • Updating the SEF at the Leadership and Management meetings
  • Discussing prioritisation of objectives in the key area that form the SSDP
  • Having a monitoring role
  • Being involved in evaluation of impact of actions

We recognise that most Governors have a limited amount of time to give to the role. It is necesary, therefore, to have systems and procedures that allow Governors to be involved and informed in a mangeable and sustainable way.

Governors' Involvement in Monitoring

  • Governors are divided across the three Leadership teams
  • The Governor makes links with the lead person and all other members of the team, who then work together to address initiatives/priorities. Progress over the year is discussed and monitored
  • Feedback is then made to the full Governing Body, either termly or annually
  • This method helps to keep workload manageable, but provides a systematic process that keeps Governors informed of progress and impact of the various priorities in the school development plan

Governors' Involvement in Evaluation

One of the most important things that Governors do is evaluate impact. This evaluation process allows Governors to become more informed about:

  • The work of the school
  • How well the school is doing
  • The barrier and constraints that the school faces
  • The school's capacity for change and development

 

Meet the Rossmore School Governors

Chair of Governors - Mr T Williams

I was originally a Parent Governor as my three daughters all attended Rossmore School. I grew up, work and live locally and take a keen interest in Rossmore School being seen as a Community School, which delivers a safe, enjoyable and progressive education for its pupils.

Vice Chair of Governors- Mrs J Rich

I initially became a parent governor of Rossmore School when my children commenced their educational journey, and I wanted to find out how I could help them. I have been a governor for over 25 years as Chair and am presently Vice Chair. I was also a Governor of Neston High School during my children’s' secondary education. I have now retired from nursing and commenced a teaching programme called Passion for Learning, which helps children gain pleasure through reading and play.

Local Authority Governor- Miss J Kerwin - To be updated.

Parent Governor- Mrs H Chapman

I have been a midwife for the past 15 years, working both within the hospital and community setting. This role has created within me a strong belief that all children should be provided with a supportive environment to allow them to reach their full potential. I became a governor at Rossmore School in 2014 when my 2nd son started in Reception. I have enjoyed seeing how the school and primary education works in more detail. I believe the governors working in partnership with Rossmore’s staff and it's parents will ensure that the school provides a conducive environment to learning and development, allowing our children to leave with happy memories of their school and having reached their full potential.

Parent Governor- Mrs A Jones -To be updated.

Staff Governor- Mrs B Bouckley

Associate Member- Mr T Podmore
