Welcome to the Governors section of the website

The governors at Bellfield Infant School play an integral part in the running of the school.

The governing board is made up of a variety of individuals from different backgrounds including, local authority governors and parents. All the governors are volunteers who are committed to offering their time, expertise and support to the school.

Governor meetings are held regularly, after school roughly 6-8 times a year, although governors regularly make informal visits to the school to view and monitor progress with the curriculum, environment and ethos of the school. The school governors also undergo regular training to keep them up to date with the latest issues concerning the school.

The Governors act as a critical friend to the school and are responsible for monitoring the schools performance. They work with the school to raise standards and maintain high standards of behaviour and attendance. The governors also have a responsibility to decide how the school budget is spent and to set targets for the school to continue to improve. They are committed to working with parents and the wider community.

It can be a very challenging but a very rewarding experience. The governors all believe that the children at Bellfield Infant School deserve the very best. We all bring our own skills and experiences to the role and are committed to giving our time and energy to support and move the school forward.

We are proud of our school and we have the greatest confidence in recommending it to you for your child or children.
