BOXGROVE GOVERNING BODY

The overall responsibility for governance at Boxgrove Primary School rests with the Board of Trustees of Guildford Education Partnership (GEP).  GEP has established a Local Governing Body for the school whose responsibilities are identified through the Scheme of Delegated Authority, a copy of which is available by clicking here.

The Local Governing Body at Boxgrove Primary School is a very committed and hard working group of volunteers whose primary concern is the education, well-being and happiness of the children and staff.  We come from all walks of life and backgrounds and represent the parents, staff, and local community.

The Local Governing Body meets twice a term and the role of the Governors is to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school; oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent; contribute to the school’s self-evaluation and understand its strengths and weaknesses; support and strengthen school leadership, holding the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to account for improving the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff.

The day-to-day running and management of the school is the role of the educational professionals, namely the Headteacher and his Senior Leadership Team.  Through monitoring the different aspects of the school’s work we aim to help the Senior Leadership Team to identify the school’s strengths and weaknesses and then support the school as it seeks to develop strategies for improvement.

The Local Governing Body of a school is based on a stakeholder model; that is to say it is made up of representatives of those groups who have an interest in how effective the delivery of education and care is in school. This includes parents, staff, and the local community.
The Governors elected to become a Sponsored Academy from 1 September 2013 as part of the GEP Multi Academy Trust.  The school-to-school support from GEP is leading to sharing of best practice, resources and facilities, with the long- term goal of improving provision and outcomes for the children.

 

Our Chair of Governors is Mrs C Wijnja and she can be contacted via the School Office (01483) 563701 or email cog@boxgrove.surrey.sch.uk 

A MESSAGE FROM MRS WIJNJA
I started as a Parent Governor in 2009 and was appointed Chair of Governors in September 2015.  Being a Governor is challenging in an ever changing environment but incredibly rewarding. I have worked for over 20 years in Financial Services as a Change Professional, where I have covered a variety of areas: business analysis; project management; risk management and project governance.  This experience has given me skills which I am now using in my role as School Business Manager at a local school. In my spare time I am actively involved as a committee member for a children's activity organisation running a variety of activities on Saturday morning for children aged 5 - 13.  I have two boys who both attended George Abbot.
