Governors

The role of the Governing Body at Lakeside

Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about your governors and the work of the Governing Body.

 “The role of school governors is to set strategic direction, to hold school leaders to account for improving performance, and to make sure money is well spent”

Department for Education
Strategic > Governors at Lakeside work alongside the Headteacher to ensure that the needs, aims and priorities of the school are targeted and implemented. This focus is not just from an academic perspective but considers the school community as a whole.

Challenge > as Governors we ask questions, we challenge and we monitor what is going on in the school. We do this through committee meetings at all levels, school visits, talking to staff and looking at data associated with the school.

Accountable > the Governing Body is legally responsible for the conduct of the school. To ensure that we are effective in terms of governance we monitor learning and staff performance, we make sure that money is being spent wisely and we document all that we learn.

If you are interested, the Department for Education has a wealth of information about school governance here.

Who we are:

  • David Young - Chair and Co-opted Governor
  • Hayley Hutchison - Headteacher
  • Ben Braiden - Parent Governor
  • Louisa Hammond - Year 4 Teacher & Staff Governor
  • Tim Kay - Vice Chair & Parent Governor
  • Tina Richards - Deputy Head & Associate Member, Curriculum Committee
  • James Sharp - Co-opted Governor
  • Daniel Gillingham - LA Governor
  • Kate Shepherd - Clerk to Govenors

 

If you want to know more, a description of each type of school governor can be found here.

How we work
The bulk of the work of the Governing Body is carried out by committees and working groups, where specific issues are discussed and decisions made. At Lakeside, we have two committees, Resources and Curriculum & Standards. In addition to these core committees, working groups are formed when particular issues need to be explored. The expansion building project group has now completed its work; no others are in place at the moment. Each governor serves on one or more committees.

Working together
To ensure Lakeside is successful, children, parents, staff and community partners must work together to make it possible for every child to succeed and reach their potential. To achieve this, and to carry out our role as governors effectively, we need to know what issues are important to you (so we remain responsive) and ensure that you know what issues the governors are discussing (so that we remain accountable).

Keeping in touch
If you have an enquiry that you wish to raise with the Governors, please email chair@lakeside.gloucs.sch.uk. Please note that your feedback is important so if you have any concerns, questions or suggestions please let us know.
