Meet the Governors
Ashdown Primary School has a governing body made up of volunteers from the parent body, staff and local community. They make collective decisions and their primary function is to help raise the educational standards and performance of a school by supporting the work of the headteacher and staff.
The Governing Body is answerable to parents and the wider community. It is the schools’ accountable body and when the school undergoes an Ofsted inspection the governing body is graded by Ofsted as part of the Leadership & Management element of the inspection.
It is responsible for the conduct of the school and for promoting high standards. The Governing Body aims to ensure that children are attending an effective school which provides them with an excellent education and supports their well-being.
School governors perform a uniquely valuable job in helping to ensure that children learn in a safe stimulating environment. Governors are an integral part of the school team, helping to drive forward continuous improvement by supporting, challenging and holding to account the headteacher and other members of the school’s leadership team
