Governors

The Governors are appointed to make strategic decisions about the direction the school will take. They discuss what is taught, agree targets and monitor how well the school and its pupils are doing.

They meet once a term as a full Governing Body. Each governor also belongs to a committee e.g. the finance committee. There are also some individual governors who take on a curriculum responsibility e.g. special educational needs or literacy.

Being a parent governor is one way that you can show your support of the school. Parent governors are elected so that they bring a parent’s view to the Governing Body. Parents are notified of vacancies through a letter and anyone who has a child in the school may stand for election. If you are elected you stand for four years.

Chair of the Governing Body

I would like to introduce myself as the new Chair of Governors of Canon Barnett Primary School.

I have been a governor of the school for over 10 years and I'm now delighted to take on the role of the Chair.  

I am a Chartered Accountant and Director at the Financial Reporting Council, which is the regulator for the accountancy, audit and actuarial professions and is based on London Wall, close to the school.  

I live in Sevenoaks, Kent and I'm married with two children aged 8 and 4 who both attend Sevenoaks Primary School.
