Governor visits are part of an effort to help governors stay up to date with the progress, challenges, and provision in the school, so that they can more effectively support strategic development. Each visit has a different focus and involves pupil interviews as well as visiting classrooms. While the governors are there in part to see teaching and learning in action, visits and learning walks are part of a long-term collaborative process between school staff and governors to drive improvement. Because of the long-term collaboration between staff and governors, teachers are supportive of the visits and feel that governors are more involved in the school’s work.
Governors can be contacted c/o Mrs Jane Butler, Chair of Governors, via the school.
In February Sholing Junior School joined the Hamwic Educational Trust and more information regarding the governance structure can be found at www.hamwic.org/governance.
