Govenors' Vision Statement

Governors’ Vision Statement


As Governors we will work with staff and parents to help children enjoy their learning and achieve of their best in all aspects of school life. Our vision for our children is evidenced in the school’s vision:

‘’Raising expectations, creating opportunities, celebrating success. We will provide every child with an outstanding education, so that they can develop into confident young people with a sense of self-worth -who believe they can make a difference in the world’’

and values:

‘Academic Excellence, Building Character, Happy-Healthy-Safe’.

We would like to see Weyfield Primary Academy continue its positive trajectory in achieving an outstanding provision, therefore as Governors we aim to:

  • Improve the school’s year on year achievement levels

We work closely with the Headteacher to ensure a cycle of continual improvement.  Governors are individually linked with school priorities and undertake regular visits to school relating to their specific responsibilities. We ensure support for all groups of children, to include boys, girls, more able, vulnerable learners, pupil premium and children with special educational and/or medical needs is of the highest standard so all children are supported to achieve their best potential.

  • Develop the Governing Body to provide more challenge, rigour and strategic support to the school.

Support the Headteacher and Staff, as well as constructively challenge and build on their own expectations to ensure the best possible outcomes for children are achieved. Continually evaluate strategic plans and policies. Provide input into school development plans, to include curriculum development, which cover the school’s immediate future and show the longer term progress the school will make over the next three to five years.

Ensure that the school is financially sound, making best use of its income in ways which have a positive impact on the quality of teaching and learning, achievement, assessment and pupils’ experience of school.


  • Develop a more visible and transparent style of governorship within the school community in order to ensure that parents and pupils are being heard and involved.

We’d like to create and sustain a school community in which all parents and carers, pupils, staff and visitors feel welcomed and valued. We want to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to contribute to the development of the school and the quality of education it provides, through the sharing of ideas, developments, achievements, celebrations, needs and concerns. We also aim to learn from the best: working in collaboration with other schools in our local community and the wider education community to share best practices and ensure that all pupils receive the best provision possible.

The Governing Body consists of local people who freely volunteer their time. They meet frequently each term to discuss a wide range of school issues. There are a number of areas of specific responsibility, each of which have allocated Lead Governors. To find out more about our Governing Body click here .
