Welcome to our Governors’ Section

At Mosscroft Primary school we have a keen and supportive Governing Body, who are passionate about the future of the school, the role it plays in the wider community and particularly how it supports all its pupils. The governors take great pride in their role and responsibilities and make every effort to be involved in school life.

 

Our Governing Body is chaired by Mr. Nick Bowmaker and our Vice Chair is Mr. Paul Maryon ; both live within the local community and are passionate about securing quality outcomes for our pupils.

The school governing body is responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education for every child.  Together with the headteacher, who is responsible for day to day management, they set the school’s aims and policies.  The governing body has two committees – Resources Committee and Standards Committee – who meet termly in addition to termly meetings of the full governing body.

 

Key roles of governors:

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • To hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent

A note from the Chair of Governors

Dear parents, staff and residents,

 

I am privileged to have been Chair of Governors for Mosscroft Primary School for the past 4 years.

I have been a governor since my own children were pupils at Mosscroft Primary and have always believed that Mosscroft is a great school where children will have their potential recognised and fulfilled. I shall be working in partnership with the Governing Body to continue to ensure that this is the case in order that the children of Mosscroft Primary receive the best school experience possible.

 

Mosscroft serves a diverse community and strives, and I believe succeeds, to encourage interaction and participation within it.

 

Thank you

 

Nick Bowmaker
