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.
