Governors

 

We are very lucky to have an extremely committed and enthusiastic governing body at out school.

 

The governors are similar to a board of directors whose main roles are; to plan the strategic direction of the school and to monitor and evaluate the schools progress, providing both encouragement and challenge.

The Governors’ Award

Last year, the Governing Body introduced a new award for Burghclere Primary School.

 

The Governors’ Award is open to all pupils at the school, in any class and is awarded towards the end of the academic year to the pupil whose behaviour and values throughout the year have been exemplary and who best capture the ethos values of our school (Trust, Respect, Enthusiasm, Engagement). It is not awarded for academic excellence.

 

We make the process of identifying the winner as fair and objective as possible. In the summer term, the class teachers anonymously nominate three or four candidates with a paragraph that encapsulates why the pupil should be considered, giving specific examples to support their nominations.

 

The Governors of the school meet and carefully consider the nominations and vote for their preferred candidate. Staff Governors do not vote. The pupil with the majority vote is the winner.

It is very exciting for the Governors and children alike as we have no knowledge of who we choose until the process is complete!

 

The pupil selected is informed at an assembly in front of all their peers and given the prestigious trophy and prize from a number of the Governors. Their picture then adorns the entrance hall for the following academic year. The winner of our second annual award last year was Beatrix Hennessey. Beatrix was selected for  being thoroughly committed to learning, becoming more independent, sharing her ideas more confidently and always using kind words about other people - wonderful characteristics in a young child!
