The Reddings Primary & Nursery School

Our Governors

The Governing Board at The Reddings Primary & Nursery School would like to extend a warm welcome to you all. We want all our young learners to develop to their full potential both academically and socially, so that they become responsible and caring citizens in their later lives.

The role of the Governors’ is to work closely with the Headteacher and leadership team to provide the very best education for all at The Reddings. We are responsible for monitoring and evaluating the performance and effectiveness of the school, for ensuring that the budget is managed prudently and for supporting our excellent team of staff.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum and aim for enjoyment in learning. Staff are experienced and dedicated and work in partnership with parents and children. At the heart of all we do is the current and future wellbeing of our learners, ensuring they have access to an enriched education and the opportunities they deserve.

Gill Knibbs, Chair of Governors




About Our Governing Body

The Governors at The Reddings Primary & Nursery School have been elected or appointed to represent parents, staff and various groups within the community. We are a committed group who work collectively to form the Governing Board. We give our time voluntarily to support the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team in the governance and strategic leadership of the school.

We organise our work through a structure of meetings, working parties and designated lead governors. The Governing Board meets regularly throughout the term, focusing our meetings on different aspects of our responsibilities. Improvement and Outcomes meetings consider everything to do with children’s education and wellbeing whilst the Finance and Resources meetings consider premises, personnel and finance. Full Governing Board meetings consider strategic items and statutory requirements.

Governors are committed to their ongoing professional development, attending a range of governance training organised by Herts for Learning to ensure they are fully equipped and effective in their roles.

Governors visit the school regularly to see policy put into practice and measure its effectiveness, whilst enabling them to understand fully the day to day aspects of school life. We actively encourage feedback from parents and carers and we are always happy to meet with you. Contact can be made via the school office or directly to the Chair of Governors.
