Welcome From the Chair of Governors
I feel privileged to be the Chair of the Governing Body of Ashfield School. I have been a governor at the school since 2006. I am always hugely impressed by both the energy and drive of the talented staff team and the quality of the students. The improvements made at the school during the past few years have been remarkable but, as governors, we are not complacent and we will continue to support and challenge the school to make further improvements for the benefit of all our learners.
As a governing body, we work closely with Mr Maher and his leadership team to ensure that we have in place a clear strategic direction for the development of the school and a strong framework of local accountability. We do this by implementing robust scrutiny and challenge to make sure our students get the very best quality of education. We regularly challenge the Head and leadership team to ensure the School’s strategy for continual improvement is working.
As an academy, we also recognise our responsibilities as employers and seek to improve the working environment and support all our teaching and support staff. The facilities at the school are second to none and we are proud of our record as governors in ensuring the learning environment is continually improving for the benefit of students at the school.
The governing body, Headteacher and senior leaders have the following school aims:
- To maximise the attainment and progress of all learners.
- To ensure that all teams focus on the delivery of high quality teaching over time.
The governing body is made up of people with a wide range of experience and expertise in business, public service and local community organisations. We also have three staff governors who represent the teaching and support staff of the school. As a governing body, we are proud to serve the school and to represent the interests of students and their families.
