SPJS Governors have adopted the new "Instrument of Governance."
The Governing Body consists of the following:
A register of Governors' interests can be seen below.
The Governing Body plays a key role in helping Stanley Park Junior School provide the best possible education for all its pupils.
Governors do this by working closely with the Headteacher and staff, playing a part in the strategic leadership of the school.
Governors work as a team, offering both support and challenge to the Headteacher and staff who have responsibility for the day to day running of the school.
The Governing Body:
We have parent, Local Authority, teacher, community, partnership, staff and headteacher governors.
Governors are accountable to parents and the wider community to ensure that standards are of the highest quality.
Details of who we are, and how to contact us, appear below.
The full Governing Body meets at least once a term and delegates much of its decision-making to its sub-committees. Our main committees are:-
These committees meet at least termly.
Our other committees meet from time to time as required to deal with matters such as:-
Governors are also involved in panels to make staff appointments and hear admissions appeals.
In addition we have a Safeguarding Working Group.
Committees report to the full Governing Body Meeting. Individual governors accept specific responsibilities, which sometimes involve representing the Governing Body on Borough wide organisations.
Governors usually serve a term of four years and provide their services in an unpaid capacity. The work requires commitment, but is extremely rewarding. We strongly encourage all parents to consider putting their names forward for this worthwhile role.

The local authority provides training and support for all governors and governing bodies (including advisors and clerks for full governing body meetings).

Parents, staff and members of the community may wish to contact governors to express views, and governors very much welcome any such messages, as we are keen to keep in touch with and take account of these views.
It is important to say though, that any day to day queries relating to named pupils should always be directed to school staff first, so that they can discuss and deal with matters in the normal way.
Similarly, staff should use their usual line management and communication links in the first instance.
Additionally, if you have a complaint, please follow our complaints procedure which can be found in the "Policies & Procedures" section of our website, under the "About Us" tab.
You can contact the Governing Body through this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Just so you know, this email address is checked once a week during school term. If you need a more urgent response, please call the school office and say you would like to get in touch with the Governing Body.
The school office number is 020 8647 7497 and the email is email@example.com
