School governors support the strategic leaders of Hallbrook Primary School.  Governors provide robust challenge to school leaders and hold them to account for pupils' outcomes, but they also provide support to the Head Teacher and school.

An effective Governing Board has the opportunity to support children in their community to develop into confident, self-assured, resilient young people who leave school having experienced a good quality education that prepares them for all aspects of their life ahead.

Volunteering as a governor does take a time commitment - preparing for and attending meetings, additional school visits for monitoring purposes, writing reports, supporting interviewing for new staff, and of course, your own training and continuing professional development.

Caroline Cartlidge

Co-opted Governor

I started working with the school assisting KS1 children to read after being involved with a RICS programme shortly after my child entered Year 1.  Shortly after that I was very pleased to be accepted as a co-opted Governor for the school.

I am currently a member of the Curriculum, Performance & Standard committee, with particular interest in how Computing, Science, Music and MFL (modern foreign language) are taught within the school.

Having over 20 years’ experience of being part of IT system implementations, performing business analysis, and leading projects, I believe the professional skills I have gained here provides valuable experience in being a successful school governor.


My child continues to be very happy at Hallbrook and is performing well.  I would hope that every child who attends this school has the same experience and the role of governor provides me with an opportunity to help make this happen.
