Beth Taylor is Southfield's Chair of the Academy Committee.
I am delighted to introduce myself as chair of the Joint Academy Committee for Southfield and Eastrop schools. As a Governing Board we are proud of our children and our vision and our values.
The Governing Board work hard to support the headteacher, teaching staff and pupils with the aim of ensuring Southfield Junior school is the best it can be. The role of the Governing Board is to ensure the schools statutory obligations are met in addition to reviewing and monitoring objectives, planning for the future and to make sure the vision for the school is both challenging and realistic.
It is the responsibility of the head of school to run the school, however, it is the role of the Governing Board to support and strengthen the head of school’s leadership and to hold them accountable for the performance of children and staff.
