Governors at Patchway Community School work alongside the senior leadership team in developing the vision and aims of the school community.
They seek to raise standards and achievement through the appropriate use of all available resources.
The Governors aim to:
- Provide strategic direction for the work and improvement of the school.
- Support, monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the school.
- Ensure accountability for standards and quality of education in the school.
The governing committee consists of people from a variety of backgrounds and representing different areas of the school and local community. They are elected for a four-year term, and meet as a full team for at least six formal meetings during the school year.
As well as the commitment to attending these meetings, governors are involved in many aspects of school life such as meetings with students and parents, lesson visits, monitoring the school improvement agenda, and meetings with school staff.
Governors have a broad and varied experience and background, with experience in education, business, health service and technology. All Governors’ work is done on a voluntary basis and the governing committee is assessed by Ofsted in much the same way as the rest of the school.
The school is always keen to hear from people who may be interested in finding out more about our work; initial contact can be made with the Headteacher or Chair of Governors via the school at
