Dear Parents and Carers,
I am writing to introduce myself as the Chair of Governors at Milford-on-Sea CE Primary School (MOSPS). My name is Clive Bryant and I have been part of the governing body since May 2018 when I was appointed as a Co-opted Governor.
My previous background included working for over 30 years in the Financial Services sector initially as an IT project manager before progressing to the role of IT Director, a position I held for 15 years.
What do Governors at MOSPS do?
The Governing Body has three specific roles:
They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:
How we work
The Governing Body has established a number of committees and statutory panels. We meet as a Full Governing Body every term. The Governing Body’s committees also meet twice every term to review and discuss the details of the school life.
These committees cover:
The statutory panels only meet when they are needed and these are:
As Governors, we also share a common objective, which is the wider school community – working in partnership with you as parents and carers and staff to ensure that every child can succeed and reach their full potential. To achieve this, and to carry out our role as governors effectively, we need to know what issues are important to you (so we remain responsive) and ensure that you know what issues governors are discussing (so that we remain accountable). That is why, as governors, we work closely with Miss Crawford and staff to ensure that we continue to deliver a high standard of education to our children at MOSPS.
I think that the most important thing to note is that governors are a team, not a collection of individuals or groups with separate agendas. However, much we may sometimes differ in our opinions and experiences we are united by our commitment to the School and the responsibility we share for the School’s long-term success.
All relevant information is included on the School’s website. Please remember that the website is a good way of keeping up to date with all aspects of school life.
If you have a concern or a point of view to share, please let us know. We can be contacted via the School Office or by e-mail email@example.com
I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible during the coming months and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and to assure you that I am committed to and very proud of our School. I will continue working with Miss Crawford and her staff, governors, parents and pupils as we all collectively strive to make MOSPS a great School.
