Meet the Governors

The Governing body is made up of staff, parents, members of the Local Authority and members of the local community. Governors play a vital role in the leadership and management of the school, providing support and challenge to ensure that the school is the very best that it can be.  They set the strategic direction of the school by working with the leadership team to, amongst other responsibilities, agree policies, set and review targets, review budgets and staffing, ensure parents and pupils are involved, consulted and informed as appropriate, and make information available to the community.

At Studlands Rise the governors take a keen interest in the school and regularly visit to make sure that they understand how the school runs on a day-to-day basis by taking part in learning walks with the leadership team, conducting some staff and pupil voice, taking part in class trips, supporting whole school events, to name just a few.

The Full Governing Body meets termly.  The Curriculum committee and Finance, Premises and Personnel committee also hold joint meetings on a termly basis.

Please direct any correspondence that you have for school governors to the school office.

I am currently parent governor at Studlands rise first school and have enjoyed the challenges involved in assisting to maintain this friendly, caring and dynamic school.  Through my experience as a Sister at Addenbrookes hospital I feel I have been especially helpful in assisting with recruitment of staff and well-being of both staff and pupils.

I have one child currently at the school and one who has finished at Studlands and gone on to middle school. This has allowed me to see first hand how important good staff and good support for staff allows for the high standards Studlands maintains. I am passionate about helping this lovely school to keep thriving, and helping its pupils on their "first steps on the learning journey."
