Welcome to our Governors section

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

 

"Senior leaders and governors set high standards in all aspects of the school's work” (OFSTED 2019)

 

The Governing Body of Chandler’s Ford Infant School would like to welcome and thank you for your interest in our school. The school is a warm, welcoming and caring environment where children feel safe and happy so they can learn and grow.

 

We are lucky to have a very active and committed Governing Body who work in close partnership with the Headteacher, Mrs Strong, and all the staff. We provide a key role in the strategic leadership of the school, ensuring that through support and constructive challenge we are helping the school to achieve the best possible outcomes for its’ pupils. Full Governing Board meetings are held termly, and depending on individual responsibilities there are other committee meetings and working groups that we attend. We carry out regular, targeted Governor visits, as well as getting involved in the school community such as helping at the Christmas Fayre and Summer BBQ.

 

If you wish to get in touch with us, please do so via the school office on 023 8025 2655, or email for the attention of the Chair of Governors to adminoffice@chandlersford-inf.hants.sch.uk, or in writing to the school postal address.

The Governing Body was reconstituted in May 2015.

Principles of Working as a Governor and as a Governing Body:

Governors, once appointed, are holders of public office, and work to the same principles as any paid public official. This is true both as an individual and as a whole Governing Body.

Governors follow The Seven Principles of Public Life from the Second Report of the Committee on Standards in Public Life – The Nolan Committee CM3270 – 1 May 1996. These are Selflessness, Integrity, Objectivity, Accountability, Openness, Honesty and Leadership.

 

 

The Governors are all volunteers and are elected or selected in the following categories:

  • Staff governors (elected by school staff for a term of four years)
  • Parent governors (elected by parents for a term of four years)
  • Local authority governors (appointed by the Local Authority for a term of four years)
  • Co-opted governors (appointed by the Governors for a term of four years)
