Welcome to our Governors’ section.
On behalf of the Governors, I would like to welcome you to our website and to our school. Kempsey Primary School is a vibrant, exciting place to learn and I am proud to be Chair of its Governing Body.
Our Governing Body is comprised of a team of volunteers representing parents, staff, the local community and the Multi Academy Trust (MAT).
Kempsey Primary School became an Academy on the 1 April 2017, forming a Multi Academy Trust along with Hanley Castle High School and Hanley Swan, St Gabriel’s with St. Mary’s C of E Primary School in the Hanley and Upton Educational Trust (HUET).
As a Multi Academy Trust, the Articles of Association allows the Local Governing Body to consist of up to three Parent Governors, three Staff Governors (including the Headteacher), and up to 5 Appointed Governors.
The head teacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing board. The HUET scheme of delegation provides the governing body with the framework with which to make strategic decisions. The governors meet at least five times a year with committee meetings, visits to school, conversations with parents, children and staff and attendance at training sessions further supporting their understanding of how the school is operating, and the progress that the children are making against high expectations. The priorities of the school are detailed in the School Development Plan which details how the staff of Kempsey Primary School are aiming to provide the children with experiences and opportunities alongside the exciting, broad and balanced curriculum that has been established.
The governors of Kempsey Primary School are immensely proud of the pupils and are committed to supporting and challenging the headteacher and staff to ensure that the children are given the understanding and abilities to live life in the 21st Century as they grow up.
