Chair of Governors

Dear Parents and Carers of Oak Meadow Primary School.

 

I began my journey on the Oak Meadow Governing Board 4 years ago as a Parent Governor. Since then, I was elected as Chair of the Curriculum Committee, and now I am proud and honoured to have been elected to the important position of Chair of the Governing Board.

 

My primary ambition as Chair of Governors is to continue to work in partnership with the Head Teacher, Senior Leadership Team and Staff of Oak Meadow to help to deliver the 1st class education to all of the children of the school.

 

As a Governing Board, we do not get involved in the day to day running of the school, we do however:

 

-Ensure accountability to the school community;

 

- Act as a critical friend to the school;

 

-Take an active interest in the improvement plans for the school.

 

The nurture, warmth, and care given to the children by the Staff of Oak Meadow is outstanding. Oak Meadow is a family, and I am proud to part of this family.

Yours Kelly Hughes
