Governors

Welcome from the Governors of Lee-on-the-Solent Infant and Nursery School

 

Please find below details of how our governing body is structured, what our roles and responsibilities are and the names and terms of appointment for each Governor.

 

The governing body of the school works with the Headteacher to ensure that all children are given the best opportunities while in our school.  The governors work to ensure there is strategic leadership, robust accountability and good oversight of the school’s educational and financial performance.

 

Governors visit the school regularly, examine progress and attainment data, review the school budget and make sure the school is working towards its current objectives in the School Improvement Plan (SIP).

 

The full governing body (FGB) meet at least twice per term. Responsibility for specific areas is delegated to committees or individual governors. Governor committees include Headteacher Performance Management, Pay Committee, Resources Committee and Curriculum Committee.

 

Governors are recruited from the parents of children in our school, and from the wider community.  We aim to have a broad range of expertise, skills, and experience among the governing body, so that together we can support and challenge the school.  Governors attend training to up to date with current legislation around governance.

 

The role of the governors is strictly strategic, and the day-to-day management of the school is entrusted to the Headteacher and the school’s Senior Leadership Team. However, the governors are keen to be involved in the life of the school and are often in attendance at school events.

 

If you are interested in investing in your child’s education by joining the governors, the Chair of Governors would be glad to speak with you about the role in greater depth. You can contact the Chair via the school office.

 

We would also encourage you to support the school and your children’s education in other ways. Attending events or becoming involved with FLINS (Friends of Lee-on-the-Solent Infant and Nursery School) will help to model being Part of the Community, one of our LEAP Values.

SIMON TRIPP

Chair of Governors

 

My name is Simon Tripp and I've been a Royal Marines Musician for 30 over years; the last 11 years of which as a Bandmaster. I’ve been a Co-opted Governor at Lee-on-the-Solent Infant & Nursey School since February 2015, and in December 2018 I became Chair of Governors. In my time as a governor I have been involved with Head Teacher Performance Management, the Pay Committee and the Finance & Resources Committee. I chose to be a governor because I want to play a part in my local community and support the School in delivering the best education possible to the children of our town.

Paul Chamberlain

Vice Chair of Governors

 

I’m Paul Chamberlain, the local vicar. I’m the Vice-Chair of Governors at the Infant School, and an Associate Governor at the Junior School! I’m on both governing bodies as part of a plan to help the schools work more closely together, part of which has a governor from each school being an Associate Governor at the other. I’ve been a school governor in Lee for over four years, and I’m a parent at the Junior School as well. I’m a governor because I want the children of our town to have the best education they can, and governors play an important role in helping our schools make this happen.
