Welcome from the Chair
Chair of Governors
Dear Parents, Carers and Friends,
On behalf of the Governors I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Streatley CofE School.
As a Governing Board we are proud of our children and our warm, nurturing and dynamic school. The Governing Board work hard to support the headteacher, teaching staff and pupils with the aim of ensuring Streatley School is the best it can be.
The role of the Governing Board is to ensure the schools statutory obligations are met in addition to reviewing and monitoring objectives, planning for the future, and to make sure the vision for the school is both challenging and realistic. It is the responsibility of the headteacher to run the school, however, it is the role of the Governing Board to support and strengthen the headteacher’s leadership, and to hold her accountable for the performance of children and staff.
All our Governors bring with them a range of different skills and experiences to enhance the leadership and management of the school within a great community. Decisions are taken by the whole Governing Board which meets once every half term, while sub-committee meetings consider the more specific areas of staffing, curriculum and finance. A list of Governors is provided on this website.
We feel extremely privileged to be part of the life of our successful and vibrant school and appreciate the active and enthusiastic role Streatley parents play, both in the development and growth of the children, and through the fundraising activities of FOSS.
