The Oldfield Primary School Governing Board
Governors use a range of strategies to check on the
work of the school and hold leaders to account.
Consequently they play a key role in driving improvement.
- Ofsted (January 2017)
Here at Oldfield we have a diverse and talented Governing Board which Ofsted have recognised as making an effective contribution to leadership and management within the school.
Governors are volunteers who carry a great deal of responsibility. Our role is strategic rather than operational. This means we are involved in setting the direction of the school and monitoring progress towards agreed objectives, but not in day to day management issues. We work by offering both support and challenge to the school’s decision makers. Like parents and carers, we all want the best outcome for every child at Oldfield, and our wide-ranging professional and personal backgrounds mean we are well placed to help ensure this happens.
