Campsbourne Governing Body works with the Head Teacher and staff at the school to promote high standards of educational achievement in a safe, supportive and inclusive environment. Governors are keen to promote the school and to ensure it meets children’s needs and the aspirations of the local community. We want to build on the progress that the school has made in the last few years. In particular, the school has developed a child-centred ethos with improved educational standards. We are proud of the continuing improvements to the school’s buildings and grounds at the foot of Alexandra Palace.
In September 2017 the governing body made the decision to retire the Committees and to meet more regularly as a Full Governing Body. Meetings of the Governing Body now take place at least once a month during term time. At these meetings we discuss the work of the school and the plans for the future.
The Governing Body consists of two parent governors who are elected by parents, a nominee from Haringey Council, the Head Teacher and one other member of the school’s teaching staff together with eight additional governors co-opted onto the Governing Body. From time to time there are vacancies on the Governing Body and joining the Governing Body can be a rewarding way to contribute to the work of the school. When there are vacancies for parent governors we write to parents asking them if they are interested in joining us and we explain the joining process. Governors are keen to be accessible to parents and other members of the school community. You will meet governors at the school gate and at meetings of the Home-School Association. Alternatively you can contact them via e-mail or the school office.
