Message from the Chair of Governors


A warm welcome from your Governing Body,


Your Governors help to ensure Beech Hill continues to be a welcoming school where pupils progress and achieve to the very best of their abilities. We do this by working with the Senior Leadership Team of the school, sharing the important tasks and decisions that help shape the school.


The Governor team is made up of people from many different ethnicities and backgrounds with a variety of experience and expertise. As a team, we have one thing in common, we place the children at the heart of everything we do, and in doing so hope to have a positive impact by actively supporting the school and acting as a critical friend; whilst being mindful of the challenges and utilising the benefits of the vibrant community that our school belongs to.


Our responsibilities are varied and encompass several areas including:

  • Setting Targets for the Senior Leadership Team
  • Monitoring pupil achievement
  • Ensuring statutory requirements are met and achieved
  • Financial oversight
  • Setting priorities for the school’s continued development and improvement


The members of the Governing Body are proud and privileged to be able to contribute to the leadership of Beech Hill for the benefit of all children, parents and staff. We hope you will take time to get to know your Governing Body.  Please feel free to get in touch at any time.


Yours truly,

Chair of Governors
