Governor Quotes

John Ault

“Fourteen years ago I joined Belmont School as a Parent Governor and did not have a clue as to what was required from me, how to support a school or how to provide effective challenge. Being a governor is a journey, during which you learn how a school is run on a day-to-day and long term basis and how you can bring your personal skills to meetings to help, challenge and support all children, the staff and the school ethos.

I work closely with the Headteacher and the Senior Leadership Team to help ensure the continued success of Belmont School. There are many aspects to the culture, value and ethos of a school and this is constantly being developed and improved. Playing a part in the decision making process and being aware of the commitment of staff to the children and the learning environment is very rewarding and I am proud to be involved in Belmont School.

A quote from John Nash (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Schools):

“Governing boards… are the vision setters and strategic decision makers for their schools. They play a vital role in ensuring the best possible education that takes every child as far as their talents allow.”

A school governor’s role is beneficial to both the school and the governor. I believe we all have the qualities to be a school governor and to play our part in achieving the best outcomes for our children.”

Donna Benton

“I first became a governor of Belmont Primary School during the time that my children attended the school. Now, even after they have both moved on, I have remained on the governing body because I have enjoyed learning, supporting and being part of the decision making. One thing I have learned is that even if you have no experience in education, this shouldn't put you off becoming involved as everyone has something to offer in their own way as well as a common interest; our children's education and helping them be the best they can be.”

Emma Jacobs

“I became a parent governor 9 years ago when my eldest son was in year 1 I felt that being a governor would allow me to be actively involved within the school and support them with providing the children with a good education. During my time as a governor I have developed a better understanding of the education system, curriculum and day to day running of the school.”

Judith McAlister

“I really enjoy being a parent governor because it enables me to find out about all the work going on behind the scenes to support and educate our children. I never cease to be amazed by the efforts and skills of the whole Belmont School staff.”
