Welcome from the Chair

On behalf of the Governors of Norton Community Primary School, I am delighted to welcome you to our website. In this section you will be able to find out more information about the school’s Governors and the work that we do.

As a governing body we are involved strategically in all aspects of the school – we have three core strategic functions which are:

  • Ensuring the vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school is clear and understood.
  • Holding the School’s Leadership Team to account for the educational performance of the school and the children, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure money is well spent for the benefit of the children.

We are here to support the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team deliver the school’s vision.

We are very proud of the work the school does to ensure a safe and happy learning environment. We have a collective commitment to ensure the highest standards of education are delivered allowing every pupil to achieve their very best.

I have been a governor at NCPS for 3 years and Chair of governors since 2020. These past 2 years have been incredibly challenging and I have witnessed first-hand the dedication and professionalism of the entire team at NCPS.

I am extremely proud to be part of the team and I know my fellow governors all feel the same way.

We look forward to continuing to work with the school to promote a safe environment that promotes high quality teaching and learning helping the pupils to achieve their very best. I can be contacted through the school should you wish to discuss any matter with me.

Dave Harnan, Chair of Governors
