Welcome to the Governors' page
The Governing Board of Kingsway Junior School is made up of parents and members of the community.
Together with staff representatives, we are accountable for the educational and financial performance of the school. We support the Headteacher and staff across the range of their responsibilities, working in the best interests of the pupils in our care.
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.
Our Chair of Governors is: Nicola Santamaria
Governor Link Visits
As a Governing Body, we have a responsibility to monitor and evaluate the progress of our school. This means that we need to keep ourselves informed about things that are happening in school, and how the school is developing its provision for all pupils. The way we manage this at Kingsway Junior School is to delegate responsibility for specific areas to individual link governors. The link governors regularly meet school leaders to find out how the school is progressing in each area and then reports back to the governing body or a committee.
Governors statement of behaviour principles
Under the Education and Inspections Act, 2006, the governing body is mandated with providing a written statement of general principles relating to behaviour and discipline, taking into account the needs of all pupils.
The purpose of this statement is to give guidance to the Headteacher in drawing up the Behaviour policy by stating the principles which governors expect to be followed. The statement is available upon request from the school and can be found on the school’s website.
