Note from the Chair of Governors
It has been a huge privilege for me to support Powell Corderoy as a Governor since 2011 and as Chair of the Governing Board since May 2017. I am proud to lead a Governing Board which enthusiastically supports and rigorously challenges the school. I am absolutely delighted that Ofsted has recognised Powell as a ‘good’ school.
The Governing Body has been recognised as a strength of the school by Ofsted. We are a very active and committed group of people drawn from parents, staff and the wider community. In their inspection report from December 2016 Ofsted remarked that ‘school leaders and governors are ambitious and have created a culture in which pupils and staff are expected to do their very best‘. As Governors we have a strong strategic vision for the school and work hard to make sure everyone connected with the school shares our vision and works towards it. Governors monitor and evaluate the school’s policies and practices to ensure that this vision becomes a reality.
I see the most important role of governors as acting as advocates for every child in the school. Our job is to make sure every child leaves Powell Corderoy as well prepared as possible for the next stage of their life; we should be ambitious for every child and make sure every day counts.
As Governors we are all very ‘Proud to be Powell’!
