Meet the Team
We believe one of the strengths of our team is that we recognise and embrace views across all of our stakeholders. Our governing body brings together a mix of people whose views and opinions are critical to ensuring long term success and stability.
Declaration of Interest
In compliance with EFA guidelines regarding the disclosure of business interests, this is to confirm there are none to disclose at Abington Vale Primary School.
The core the school community- they see things from their children’s perspective and are close to day to day activity. We are well represented by parents in Foundation and Key Stage 1, a good base for long term succession planning.
Ex AVPS parents and also our neighbours, some of which have been attached to the school for over 15 years. We recognise the importance of keeping a link to our history and ensuring we retain the essence and values of the school.
Co-opted Governors and Members
These roles provide particular skills or knowledge essential to good governance. This could be financial management, strategic planning, marketing or people management, or even a specific part of primary education. In addition, 'Members' must ensure the governing body has the right skills in place and ensure succession planning strategies exist.
Teaching and non teaching staff are well represented. The decisions we make ultimately impact their ability to run the school effectively, an inside view is important.
