Governors at Old Hall
Welcome from Mr B. Rostron, Chair of Governors
Parents and Carers,
On behalf of all the Governors, welcome to Old Hall Primary School. It is important that as parents and carers you feel welcome. A good relationship between school and home assists every child’s development. Old Hall is a warm and welcoming school where our AIM is to give each child every opportunity to reach the highest possible standards and we strive to ensure that each child achieves their personal best.
AIM stands for Aspirational, Inspirational Motivation and it is an ethos that we pride ourselves on at Old Hall. We are a school that has high expectations of pupils and staff, and we believe that the education we provide will help all the children to become confident, happy and successful people.
Our Ethos is to AIM for maximum progress for each child.
What are Governors?
At Old Hall, we enjoy strong links with our Governing Body and the wider community. The Governing Body believes that the current structure is appropriate for its current activities but continually keeps it under review. The Governing Body will also co-opt individuals with specific skills and knowledge to assist in the work of the sub-committees.
A co-opted governor is one who is appointed by the governing body and is a person who, in the opinion of the governing body, has the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.
Who are we responsible to?
School governors are responsible to and must be prepared to explain their actions to anyone with a valid interest in the school. This includes parents, staff, pupils, the Local Authority, DfE and the local community.
We are looking to recruit both Parent and Co-opted Governors to our Governing Body, please contact the School Office for further details if you are interested.
