Governing Body

Message from the Chair of Governors – Laraine Hodgson

It is an honour and privilege to have been elected as Chair of Governors at Prince of Wales.

It has always been my belief that if children are happy then they will learn. To that end, I believe that it is vital for home and school work in partnership to ensure the children try their best to achieve, and become  the best that they can be through their thirst and eagerness for learning. Successful learning raises standards but not without the hard work of a committed whole staff team who provide a vibrant, rich and diverse curriculum at Prince of Wales. There is nothing more exciting than seeing those awe and wonder moments in children’s learning, and listening to them sharing their learning achievements with those who will listen.

It is important for Governors to know and understand the school, and through meetings and visits we work hard to provide the best support we can as ‘critical friends’, as the school continues to move forward on its ever improving journey.

All Governors and staff with financial responsibility complete a declaration of business interest forms annually.

The declaration of business interest forms gives staff and Governors the opportunity to declare if they have any private or personal interests in decisions taken by the school regarding financial matters.

All forms are kept securely in the school office. These can be inspected by interested parties upon application to the Governing Body who will decide whether the interested party has a genuine reason to inspect the register.
