The Local Governing Body is made up of volunteers who represent the School’s parents and staff, Essex County Council and the local community. They support and challenge the Head Teacher to fulfil the aims of the school.

 

Inquiring minds, happy memories!

 

The Alderton vision is to deliver a first-class education with opportunities for all learners, founded on excellence and enjoyment. We aim to broaden horizons by delivering:

 

  • High quality teaching and learning
  • A rich, broad and stimulating curriculum that opens minds, motivates, challenges and excites life-long learners
  • A nurturing environment that develops the whole child, working in partnership with families and others, so that each individual is secure and well prepared for life
  • A community that promotes perseverance, aspiration, curiosity, independence, engagement and resilience
  • A collaborative ethos which is forward thinking and outward looking.

 

The strategic functions of our Governing Board are:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Monitor and evaluate the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Oversee the financial performance of the school - making sure money is well spent

Local Governing Boards are corporate bodies and individual governors have no power or right to make decisions unless governors have delegated a specific function to them. They work within an agreed Code of Conduct, respecting and maintaining the confidentiality of those items of business which the governing body deems to be confidential. The Chair does have the power to take action if the matter is urgent. ‘Urgent’ is defined in the Guide to the Law for Governors as where a delay is likely to be seriously detrimental and it would not be reasonably practicable to hold a governors' meeting to resolve the issue. Every Governing Board must have a Vice Chair who has the same role and powers if the Chair is unavailable.

 

If you have any queries, concerns or positive experiences you would like to share with Governors please contact the Chair in writing via the School Office. If you are interested in becoming a Governor please ask the Head or Chair for information.
