03 Apr David Stranger JonesChair of Governors
As Chair of Governors since November 2019, my role is to work in partnership with the Headteacher to promote the high educational standards already present at Holmleigh, to ensure the governing body sets a clear vision and strategy for the school and, with the governing body, hold the Headteacher to account for the educational standards of the pupils as well as the performance of the Holmleigh staff. We also have oversight over the financial performance of Holmleigh, ensuring the effective use of its resources.
I have been a parent governor since June 2016 and, as a parent of two children at Holmleigh (and a third in a few years!), I have a vested interest in the success of the school. Everyone knows what a fantastic school Holmleigh is, and what wonderful staff we have, and we are lucky to be able to send our children to a school which has a real emphasis on a holistic and rounded education and a culture where strong interpersonal relationships and wellbeing are seen as important as other more formal aspects of the curriculum. I want to make sure we have the best and best-equipped governing board possible so that we can play our role in supporting the Headteacher and the school continue their great work for our children.
