School Governors

Dear Parents, Carers and Friends,

At Gaskell Primary School, Governors, staff, parents/carers and children work together in a happy, creative and high attaining environment; with our core values of happiness, empathy, ambition, respect, resilience, tolerance and self-confidence underpinning everything that we do.

The Governing Body is involved with our school at every level. This includes finance, safeguarding, premises management and staff appointments. As Governors, we consider our most important role to be the safety, welfare and education of our pupils.

The children in our school achieve across the curriculum. We are justifiably very proud of them and would like to thank the parents/carers who encourage and support their children so admirably. In a good school, such as ours, parents/carers take a great interest in their child’s learning and development. During the early years of primary education, academic, personal, social and creative skills are nurtured and developed.

Governors are appointed to ensure that objectives are met, and that future planning is both visionary and realistic. We provide strategic direction for the improvement of the school; monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the school; and hold the school to account for the standards achieved and the quality of education. We are here to support and encourage our Headteacher, Senior Leadership Team and all school personnel to ensure that every one of our children has access to an enriched education and to all the opportunities that they deserve.

At the heart of Gaskell School’s vision and ethos is our aims and objectives for the ongoing improvement and development of the school. Our school aims ‘to develop each of our children to become successful citizens in today and tomorrow’s world’. We are committed to making the vision a reality and bringing real changes to the lives of our children.
