Canvey Island Infant School

Learning is a journey, not a destination

Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

A big welcome from the Governors serving on the Board for Canvey Island Infant School. We are all volunteers and have very diverse backgrounds.

 

The day to day management of the school is the role of the Headteacher, but we are here to provide a strategic direction and to act as a ‘critical friend’. We set the criteria by which the school is managed. We aim to help guide the school to improve the standard of education for all our children. We also work with the Headteacher to set the school’s aims and policies. It is important for us to ensure that the finances of the school are in order and the funding spent appropriately. We also ensure the local and national government legislation and targets are met and the curriculum is delivered to benefit all children.

 

This work is demanding but is also, in so many ways, rewarding. We enjoy being part of the school community and take an active role. We are privileged to attend school functions and to be part of the audience witnessing the hard work of the children and staff. We support the school wherever possible whether it be helping out at the Winter Fayre or monitoring the School Development Plan.

 

We work together as a team and meet half termly. If you are interested in learning more about the Governing Board, please contact Mrs D Walker, Clerk to Governors at the school.
