Heathrow Primary School, Harmondsworth Lane, Sipson, West Drayton, Middlesex, UB7 0JQ
On behalf of Heathrow Primary School’s Governing Body welcome to our website page. The Governing Body consists of various members who represent the ‘stakeholders’ of the school. These include parents, members of staff, the community, and the Local Authority. The aim of the Governing Body is to both support, and to challenge the school and to fulfill three main roles:
1. Provide strategic direction for the school.
2. Act as a critical friend to the school.
3. Ensure accountability and the optimum use of resources in order to properly meet the needs of all children and the staff that support them.
Governors meet several times each term, either as part of a full governing board meeting or as part of a smaller committee. They also visit the school to meet linked classes, attend celebration assemblies and special events and to discuss various matters linked to the school’s improvement plan. All new governors are welcomed and play a vital role in ensuring that the views of parents and the local community are heard.
