As Chair of Governors at Blythe Bridge High School & Sixth Form, I would like to extend a warm welcome to those of you visiting our website. The governing body is involved with school life at many levels, ranging from ensuring that support functions (finance, premises management, health & safety) are completely aligned with the strategic vision of the school from a quality of education perspective, to sharing in the successes of the many talented students through Governor Awards and community events.
I am incredibly grateful to my fellow governors for voluntarily devoting so much of their time and effort to the school community. Our governing body comprises elected representatives from the local authority, staff, parents and members of the community and the combined experience, skills and knowledge is vast. The job description for governors is clear, set the strategic direction of the school, hold school leaders to account for improvement and ensuring that the school budget is spent appropriately. As such, much of our time is spent working with Mrs Johnson and the senior leadership team to continually review and refine the quality of our provision through our subcommittee meetings.
If you are reading this as a prospective parent, I encourage you to spend time to look through our website, the weekly newsletters and at our pages on social media platforms, our core values of pride, respect and kindness permeate every page or post. If you are reading this with an interest in becoming a school governor, please email the clerk to governors, Mrs Mitton, email@example.com to arrange an informal conversation. We are so proud of our school and would welcome the opportunity to show you around and talk to you about the role of governors at BBHS. Finally, if you are reading this as any other key stakeholder, thank you for taking an interest.
