The Governors of the Federation work closely with the teaching staff to:
1) Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction,
2) Hold the Executive Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance of the staff,
3) Oversee the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
We are delighted with the recent progress of the schools - for example the expansion and development of West Leigh and the 2014 “Outstanding” OFSTED and SIAS reports for Backwell Junior School. It would be helpful if parents could complete the Parent View anonymous feedback (https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/ ) and please let us know (contact can be via either school) if you have suggestions / comments about any aspects of the schools.
Please also consider if you would like to give some time to serve on the Governing Body and contact one of the Governors to discuss this if you wish to know more.
