Our Governing Body
Welcome to the Governor section of the Dunchurch Infant School & Nursery website.
I would like to introduce myself; I am Eva Goodwin, Chair of Governors. I have been a Governor here for the past four years and became Chair two years ago. I live in Dunchurch and I am a teacher at a local secondary school.
My role is to work with the other Governors, Mr Dewes and the school staff to ensure that every child in the Nursery and School achieves their full potential.
The governing body has 3 main roles:
To provide a strategic direction for the work and improvement of the school
To support, monitor and evaluate the performance and effectiveness of the school
To ensure accountability for the standards achieved and the quality of education
We have an excellent and committed Board of Governors here, from a range of backgrounds, each of us offering a wealth of knowledge and expertise. Mr Dewes and the Senior Leadership Team manage the school on a day to day basis and the Governors meet regularly, as necessary, to look at specific projects, developments and to monitor the work of the school.
We support and challenge the staff to make sure that all the children are making good progress, that everyone is safe in school and that all legal requirements are adhered to.
We celebrate the achievements of children and staff, and do our best to make sure that Dunchurch Infant School & Nursery nurtures lifelong learners.
I am always happy to hear from parents and other members of the local community – both in terms of what we are doing well, and also about things we could do better. Please contact me via the School Office.
