Governing Body

WELCOME FROM THE CHAIR OF GOVERNORS


Dear Parents

As you become partners with us at Hanwell Fields Community School you will discover that we are a very warm and welcoming school that places our Childrens learning at the centre of all that we do.

We strive for excellence in all areas of school life and believe that education is about more than the time children spend in school and is more about working together with you as a partnership to give our children the very best choices and opportunities possible.

We value and respect our children as individuals and we create an environment to enable them to be healthy and happy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve and make a positive contribution to the life of the school and community, so they have the confidence to be the very best they can be.

There is nothing ordinary about our children and school, most definitely extraordinary. Our children learn in a safe, challenging and creative environment which gives them endless opportunities to achieve their potential. We seek ways in which we can expand children’s horizons, inspire them and give them a broad learning experience that encompasses a wide and varied curriculum.

We are a school that recognises and celebrates its success regularly seeking to improve in all areas. We continue to look for ways that will take us into the future and carry us forward as a school that has a reputation for excellence.

The Governing Body, Headteacher and staff welcome you as partners as we seek to offer the best learning experience we can for our children.

Yours sincerely

Andrew Lister

Governance

Hanwell Fields Community School is a part of United Learning whose Trustees hold the ultimate responsibility for the governance of each United Learning school.

The Department for Education’s governance handbook identifies the essentials of effective governance as follows:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

United Learning’s Trustees delegate certain key roles and responsibilities to the school’s Local Governing Body (LGB) and these are set out clearly in Appendix 4 to the United Learning LGB Members Handbook, which can be seen on the United Learning website.
