Governors

Welcome to the governors' section of our website.

 

All schools in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. A key role is to act as a ‘critical friend’: to support, to challenge, to ask questions, ultimately to represent the school community.

 

The Governing Body works in close partnership with the head teacher, staff and the local authority. Whilst the head teacher is, of course, responsible for the day to day running of the school, the governors are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance. It ensures the school functions well and maintains the proper range of academic and social objectives.

 

All governors attend a full governing body meeting each term. In the meantime, if you would like to discuss any matters of governance please contact Neil Robinson, Chair of Governors, who can be contacted via the school office by phone: 01773 811465 or email: info@green.derbyshire.sch.uk

 

We have also provided a Register of Governor Interests and an Annual Statement of Issues for your information.

I am the proud mum of 2 girls. My previously eldest attended the Green Infant and my youngest is currently in year 1.

It’s a privilege to be involved in helping the school  any way I can  and to work with an inspirational head  and such dedicated staff who are putting their heart and soul into improving the school for everyone. The Green Infant School has been a huge part of my family's life and is very dear to our hearts. My Nana worked for the school for 15 years and then my Mum followed suit for 25 years. I am proud to be a governor and, in some small way, upholding the family tradition!

I am a qualified accountant and previously have worked over 15 years in Finance then for the last 5 years I have headed up a Data & Analytics team for a large retailer. As a child it was the Green Infant that first encouraged my love of numbers and learning.  So I’m delighted to be involved in the Resource Management Committee and my area of responsibility for the school is unsurprisingly Numeracy and Data!!

I am a mum to three amazing children, one currently at The Green Infants. I am keen to be involved in the schools decisions to get the best for all children’s educational needs. I have taught in a Special School working with children with SEN for seventeen years and believe every child should achieve the best of their ability and that should be celebrated as every child is an individual.
