The Governors at Odessa Infant School play a very important role in ensuring that the school provides a positive educational environment for all of the young people in our community and the best possible start to their education.

Parent Governors are elected and have a specific role in representing the views of the parents and advising the Governing Body in its understanding of community issues. Parent Governors are of vital importance. All parents are urged to take an interest in the elections when vacancies arise.
Community Governors provide expertise and experience across a range of skills so as to ensure that the Governing Body is able to undertake its duty to support the creation of a strong learning environment.

The Governors strive to support and challenge the Leadership Management Team and staff to build upon the improvements that we are making as a school. The Governors monitor pupils’ progress with a high expectation that all pupils can achieve the best that they are able to. Governors also play a key role in ensuring that the Pupil Premium funding, Early Years Pupil Premium funding and Sports funding continues to make an impact in improved educational outcomes for our children.

The Governors also focus on the wider social aspects of the school. Parents can play an important role in supporting the Governors and staff by making sure children attend school regularly and that they are punctual. It is also very important that parents work with the school to further improve attendance by not taking holidays in term time. The Governing Body monitors levels of attendance and punctuality closely.

The Governors of Odessa Infant School welcome any comments or enquiries from parents/carers and the local community. They can be contacted through the main school office.
