The AVPS governing body is well represented across the parent and local community, as well as good representation from the commercial and public sector. The members are appointed/voted in by the Governing Body.
Our role is to set the strategic direction of the School and to ‘Challenge and Support’ in a way that facilitates positive outcomes.
The strategic agenda is set by the governing body and delivered through specialist roles within the governing body, focused on:
Pupil, Parents and Staff
Health and Safety
The school development plan
Through the Finance committee support is provided to the Bursar on Financial matters.
Recruitment decisions are supported by a panel of ‘Safer Recruitment’ trained governors; there is a strong focus on Safeguarding and Risk Management through the Resources committee.
As a governing body we are committed to:
- A school that provides every child with outstanding education and personal development. They leave our school having reached their full potential and with positive memories of their primary education.
- Pupil success facilitated by engaged and vibrant staff that creates an open culture of learning- our school is the school to work in.
- Our staff and children having the best resources to reach their objectives, continually improving facilities and first class information technology
We engage and support parents in order that they are empowered to play an active part in the performance of the school and the development of their children.
Governing Body works closely with the NPAT Board of Directors, who take away some of the more complex activities from us, this relationship allows us to focus on key priorities for the school.
