School Governors

A message from The Chair of Governors

My name is Pip Hoyes and I am Chair of Governors at Blackshaw.

Our school Governing Board is an active group of twelve appointed volunteers made up of parent, staff, local authority and community stakeholders. Each Governor is selected by the group they represent. We are all different and bring different skills and knowledge to the Governor team, but the one thing that we all have in common is that we believe that the children and staff at Blackshaw are truly exceptional!

The Governing Board works in partnership with Mrs Baron and her staff team to ensure that children receive the best education possible. It is responsible for the strategic leadership of Blackshaw, but not its day to day management.

The full Governing Board meets once a term, whilst smaller committees meet regularly to discuss matters such as school effectiveness, personnel, the school environment and school finances. Minutes of the full Governing Body meetings are available to all parents and are displayed in the foyer.

We are all very proud of our school and keen to celebrate the successes of our pupils and staff. Governors attend as many school functions as possible and also make visits to their link classes. We are committed to do our best to ensure that Blackshaw Primary School continues to promote and celebrate Education for All.
