Finance & Premises      Curriculum, Standards & Staffing   
Chair: Robin James   Chair: AJ Cripps
Kevin Weise   Aaron Griffiths
Aaron Griffiths   Andy Duncan
Daniel McNaughton   Claire McLaughlin 
Chris McMahon   Jan Milsom
  Lina Hutton


Our Governing Body is highly effective and together we believe that our contribution to Eastrop’s improvement is excellent. Recent, major achievements include:

  • The appointment of a new Head Teacher
  • The appointment of a new School Improvement Partner
  • The launch of a brand new, strategic vision
  • The production of an ambitious School Improvement Plan (SIP)

 

Governors have a very clear understanding of the progress that pupils make from their starting points and they have ambition and an unwavering desire for pupils to receive the very best education and leave the school ready and willing to tackle the challenges that lie ahead. They have high expectations of, and aspirations for, the children who attend the school. Governors have taken full account of all advice given and challenge senior leaders with rigour about the attainment and progress of pupils in the early years and Key Stage 1. This helps them to secure an external view of the school, making sure they keep abreast of where the areas for improvement are. They have helped to oversee improvements in the vast majority of areas.
