Hazel Community Primary School

Learning Every Day with Hazel Pride

Governance at Hazel

The Governors of Hazel Community Primary bring expertise from education, industry and the wider school community; we meet regularly at the school to provide challenge and support to the headteacher. 

We value and promote a positive and committed school atmosphere at Hazel Community Primary School. We believe the school enables staff, pupils, parents and governors to work together to ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to reach their full potential, and that the school is an exciting place for learning. 

The Governing body plays an important strategic and legal role in maintaining the success of Hazel Community Primary, helping to raise standards and ensure that all pupils receive the best possible education. We work closely with the headteacher, staff and the local authority in setting and agreeing the strategic direction of the school. 

 Our core functions are: 

• Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

• Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

• Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

The Full Governing Body meets twice in the Autumn term, once in the Spring term, and once in the Summer term.
