MESSAGE FROM THE GOVERNING BODY

 

Our team of Governors comprises a group of local people with a range of experience and expertise who are representatives of the local community. They have the range of skills needed to support and challenge the school in to being the best that it can be. The Governors attend training courses on all aspects of the curriculum and school management to ensure they have the necessary knowledge and skills to support the Head in the effective running of the school.  Our Governors visit the school to see the children in action.

 

Principles of Working as a Governor and as a Governing Body at Audley Junior School

 

These are the principles that the governing body work to uphold in their duty of helping the school.

 

Selflessness

Holders of public office should take decisions solely in terms of the public interest.  They should not do so in order to gain financial or other material benefits for themselves, their family or their friends.

 

Integrity

Holders of public office should not place themselves under any financial or other obligations to outside individuals or organisations that might influence them in the performance of their official duties.

 

Objectivity

In carrying out public business, including making public appointments, awarding contracts, or recommending individuals for rewards and benefits, holders of public office should make choices of merit.

 

Accountability

Holders of public office are accountable for their decisions and actions to the public and must submit themselves to whatever scrutiny is appropriate to their office.

 

Openness

Holders of public office should be as open as possible about all the decisions and actions they take.  They should give reasons for their decisions and restrict information only when the wider public interest clearly demands this.

 

Honesty

Holders of public office have a duty to declare any private interest relating to their public duties and to take steps to resolve any conflicts arising in a way that protects the public interest.

 

 

 

Leadership

Holders of public office should promote and support these principles by leadership and example.

 

 Governors at AJS are appointed and elected to provide:

  • Strong links between the school and the community it serves;

  • A wide experience of the outside world;

  • An independent view;

  • A visible form of accountability for the Headteacher and staff of the school;

  • A team focusing on long term development and improvement;

  • Accountability to the community for the use of resources and the standards of teaching and learning in the school;

  • Support for Mrs Aldred and her staff.

     

    We feel that Audley Junior School is privileged to be such a caring, well-resourced school with a highly skilled and enthusiastic teaching and support staff that creates a stimulating and exciting learning environment. The atmosphere in the school and the enthusiasm with which the children approach their work, as well as the high quality of work achieved, makes us very proud of our school. We have the greatest confidence in recommending our school to you for your child, and hope that you will come to experience for yourself all the good things we have to offer.
