Bartley C of E Junior School

Welcome from the Bartley Governing Body,

At Bartley C of E Junior School, every child, through nurture, support Christian Values and challenge will achieve their best both academically and socially.

Bartley C of E Junior School is a school which truly places each child at the heart of its decisions and wants the highest standard of education for each one. It is an inclusive school where every child is given a strong sense of belonging to our school community.

We have a professional and highly committed governing body and each member’s contribution to school improvement is valued by the school.

The role of governors is strategic which means we support the school but also professionally challenge the Headteacher and staff.

We focus on three core strategic functions to meet our statutory responsibilities:

· Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and direction

· Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of the staff

· Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

Each individual governor is a member of the governing body and all decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing body. To fulfil our strategic requirements the governing body operate as a Full Governing Body with two sub committees, Head Teachers Performance Management and  Pay and Performance.

Within a Christian ethos, we aim to create a happy, caring community where high standards of teaching and memorable learning experiences enable all our children to develop the skills and knowledge they will need for life-long learning. This Christian ethos as a Church of England school is central to everything we do and the school community has agreed on the Christian values of Love, Friendship, Trust, Thankfulness and Responsibility to underpin our work.

We look forward to meeting you at school events and are always interested in your views about how we can make Bartley even better.
