Chair’s Message

The Governors are delighted to be part of the team that is responsible for the education and wellbeing of the children at Thomas Bullock Academy.  We play an integral part in school life, not just in school, but in the wider community, which works closely with the school. The Village Charter, signed by local organisations, mirrors the school values.

Apart from attending meetings, Governors visit regularly to monitor children’s progress, oversee the budget, support the Head Teacher and all staff, and help out with school trips, sports days etc. Governors are volunteers, with varying backgrounds and skills, and undertake a range of training to help them in key areas of understanding.

The Governors work together with DNEAT to ensure the governance of the school is sound.

I am always happy to talk to parents about the roles of Governors, and to assist in any way I can.
