School  »  Governors

Who are we?
We are made up of parents, staff and people who live or work locally to school.

What’s our role?
Our core strategic functions are:
a. Ensuring Quarry Mount’s clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
b. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the
school and its pupils; and
c. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

How do we do it?
The full governing body meets around five times between September and July, and there are two committees; Teaching and Learning and Resources, which meet before each full governors meeting. Each governor joins one of these committees. We also spend time accessing training either in person or online to make sure we’ve got the skills to be good governors.
We are invited to school regularly to see all the great work our children produce, and we get to know the staff, particularly the Senior Leadership Team, who we work with to make sure Quarry Mount’s children are happy, healthy and making good progress in their learning.
As Quarry Mount is part of the Lantern Learning Trust, our Trust governors also attend meetings of the Trust board and work with governors from the other Trust schools to give all our children the best chance of fulfilling their potential.

Could you be our next governor?
We occasionally have vacancies on our Governing Body. If you are interested in the opportunity to become a governor, please contact Mrs Rebecca Pettman (Headteacher) or Mrs Liz Singleton (Chair of Governors) through school. We also offer the opportunity to local community members to become an associate governor to contribute key skills whilst learning more about becoming a governor. If you are interested in becoming an associate governor, please get in touch.
